Bug-covered baby found abandoned at Houston-area apartments

But Peterson, who was on his way to work at 5 a.m., discovered something completely different: an hours-old newborn baby, covered in ants and dirt, laying in a flowerbed. I said, 'Oh, man, there is a baby right here.

The unnamed mother is now in the custody of sheriffs and the local district attorney is now considering charges against her.

She "had mucus and blood and all kinds of stuff all over her body", Peterson said.

The infant was found outside the Cypress Creek apartment complex (pictured) in Houston, Texas, at 5am on Thursday.

Initially, the occupants of the apartment at the end of the blood trail reportedly refused to answer the knocks at the door by the deputies.

"Bro...that's insane. Somebody left their baby out here...you gotta call 911, bro", John Baldwin said in a video he shot.

Harris County Deputy Thomas Gilliland said if it wasn't for the neighbor, Peterson, they would be looking at a homicide right now, adding it was a miracle the newborn baby was found in time.

Despite Rhetoric On North Korea, US Military Posture Hasn't Really Changed
For years now, we have learned to not take Pyongyang seriously when it lets loose with it colorful rhetorical barrages. There's a sense of patriotism among those who cite the island's history of Guam residents serving in the USA military.

She was taken to a hospital, where she was listed in good condition, KPRC reported.

Child Protective Services is helping in the investigation.

Child Protective Services say the baby would be taken into temporary custody while they look for a relative who is willing to care for the child long term.

The child is now in hospital for checks until she is handed over to the CPS. We showed you the video taken by a neighbor, who discovered the baby yesterday. According to officials, there is also a fire station near the apartment complex where the baby could have been dropped. "If you feel like you just can't do it, there's someone out there that can".

"Bro, that's insane. Somebody left their baby out here".

When they did allow police inside, a 21-year-old woman denied having any knowledge of the infant but then confessed that she had given birth to her an hour earlier.

The newborn's mother, in this case, could face charges of abandoning a child, deputies said.
