ORLANDO, Fla.-- A newborn baby was left on a doorstep at an apartment complex in Orlando Saturday.

Police found the one-day-old wrapped in a t-shirt. They say he appears to be in good health and was taken to a children's hospital.

Althea Brown found the baby outside her door. "I don't know who it is. I don't know who did what, so I don't know what's in their head."

Police remind the public an unwanted newborn baby can be taken to a hospital or a fire station until the baby is seven-days-old, and the parent will not be charged.
