“I just got it off the top of the trash can and it didn’t look like it was really hurt or anything,” the rescuer said. KHON. “It was crying when I took it out of the trash, which is a good sign.”

When emergency responders arrived, they took the baby to Kapiolani Medical Center, where he was reported to be in serious condition.

“It was like a dream almost, a scary dream, like a nightmare,” he said. “It’s very sad, a very sad moment. It’s really scary to think what would have happened if I wasn’t here.”

“I kind of broke down and started crying because I don’t know how someone could leave their child like that,” she added.

The mother was not immediately found, and a case of child abandonment was opened.

Every state has a safe haven law to reduce cases of infant abandonment like this one. In Hawaiiit is legal for a parent to surrender their infant within the first 3 days after birth to any hospital, fire station, police station, or emergency medical personnel, without fear of prosecution, if the infant is in “unharmed condition.”
