VIDEO: Baby was not abandoned in Oakland, story made up


OAKLAND (KRON) — A baby in Oakland Tuesday morning was not abandoned and now police are saying the story was made up, according to police.

The mother and the family came forward admitting the story was false.

The mother claims she was afraid of giving up the baby.

Two citizens found the infant after hearing the baby’s cries in the 2900 block of 19th Avenue at around 9:57 a.m., police said.

They immediately rushed the newborn to a local hospital.

The baby and the mother are now being medically evaluated.

The investigation into the case is still ongoing.

California allows those with lawful custody of a newborn baby can safely surrender it confidentially and without prosecution within 72 hours.
