On April 29, 2019, the Detroit Fire Department received a 911 call to a west side home in Detroit. When they arrived they found a newborn boy on the bathroom floor, wrapped in a towel. His 13-year-old mother was lying unconscious on the bathroom floor. Firefighters and emergency medical personnel rendered assistance to the infant and his mother. They were transported to a local hospital for treatment. No further information is being released at this at this time because the case remains under investigation.
