TULSA, Okla. – Oklahoma police say an infant was left with their umbilical cord still attached at an Urgent Care in Tulsa.

On Tuesday, the woman went into Access Urgent Care and told hospital staff she was homeless and could not care for the newborn.

The baby’s umbilical cord was still attached at the time, KJRH reports.

Doctors believe the child was born Nov. 24, making the child less than a day old when it was left, FOX23 reports.

Under Oklahoma’s Safe Haven Law, a child up to three days old may be left with an employee on duty at any medical facility, hospital, fire station, police station or child welfare agency in Oklahoma.

The child was reportedly in good health.

Police say they are not searching for the mother and she did not do anything illegal.
