    FL - Newborn found alive in dryer

    http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/m...0&provider=top

    HOUSTON, TX -- A newborn's cries may have saved her life.

    The baby, who was just about an hour old, was discovered stuffed in a trash bag and left in an old dryer in southwest Houston on Tuesday.

    Rachid Benamir found the girl at about 3 p.m.

    "I didn't expect it's a baby," he said. "I thought it's like a newborn dog or cat, but then I saw a baby. It's something you don't see every day."

    The baby's umbilical cord was still attached.

    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    Poor little thing, I'm so glad this man heard her little cry and looked. If she had been there much longer, the story would have benn even more sad.

    God was definitely looking out for this one. Newborns need warmth because they cannot regulate their own body temperature right away.

    I can't imagine that somebody doesn't know something. There is absolutely no excuse because of the special law in place to prevent these things from happening.

    I hope she is given to a wonderful family.

    Such a happy ending. Stories like this always bother me you know, I can understand having a child and being young scared, fearful of parents or other reasonings some may have, but when they take the child and leave it in the dumpster, or the dryer etc, it is a murder in some way because most are found when it is to late and have passed. I really wish all states would have the safe haven law and offer a few places for parents to drop babys, and children discreetly, I think that it would benefit alot of these children and others who wish to have a child but can't do to health problems.

    Texas has a "Baby Moses" law to protect infants who are not wanted or whose parents cannot care for them.

    The law gives parents the option to leave a child under 60 days old at a safe place, such as a hospital or fire station. The mother could have done this. I hope they find out who she is.
