A newborn is in a hospital, but healthy, after being found abandoned in a shoebox in the lobby of a Long Island apartment building.

A resident discovered the baby girl Sunday night.

Nassau County Police medic Timothy Jaccard (Jah-KAHRD’) says he fed the baby and took her to Nassau University Medical Center. He says she’s “in very good shape.”

The Hempstead building lobby is not a safe haven. The city’s safe haven law allows babies to be left within five days of birth at a police station, firehouse or hospital.

Jaccard is president of the AMT Children of Hope Foundation/Baby Safe Haven Program.

He says the baby is Hispanic and weighs about 5.7 pounds. She was wearing a “onesie” and was wrapped in a blanket and shirt.
