(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Information has come across our news desk about an alleged abandoned baby that was discovered early this morning near Trillium Way in the Academy area.
Our source was woken up by Thunder Bay Police Service officers knocking on their door around 8:00 am. Upon answering the door, they learned that a baby was found lying in the grass nearby, and the police officers were attempting to locate the parents of the child.
The baby was estimated at around 6 months old(later confirmed to be 4 months old) and was sent to the hospital to have a medical examination. Following the examination, our source said the baby will be handed over to child care services.
“Just pure craziness abandoning your child” – says our anonymous informant.
***UPDATE: 10:15 pm July 2/2018: Two other people have come forward under the guarantee of anonymity, and have told TRCCTB.COM in an interview that the baby was lying in the grass outside of 75 Academy Drive, which has a unit that is known for drug trafficking.
***UPDATE: 10:33 pm: Information has come across our desk, that the units this baby was found in front of, are not drug use related units, and are good people.
If you have any information regarding who the parents of this baby are, please contact Thunder Bay Police Service at 807-684-1200
Pro Tip: If you don’t want your baby, give them up for adoption, or drop them off at a fire station or the hospital. Don’t leave them out in the elements to fend for them self.
