Newborn baby found in trash pile

NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

Jersey City police are searching for the mother of a newborn baby boy who was found in a trash pile Saturday afternoon.

Hudson County prosecutors say the child was found on Kensington Avenue near the McGinley Square neighborhood. The infant was taken to Jersey City Medical Center and weighs about two to three pounds.

The child was breathing on his own when he was taken to the hospital. He was being cared for in a neonatal intensive care unit.

His condition was listed as stable on Sunday afternoon.

Rebecca Wolmers says two boys heard crying from a trash pile and they knocked on her door. She said, being a mother herself, her instincts took over.

“I’m glad I didn’t see the baby purple or anything like that,” said Wolmers. “The baby was moving. I was able to clean the baby’s mouth and nose and I saw his chest moving up and down. I didn’t want to touch him too much but the baby was breathing.”

No arrests have been made and the police investigation is ongoing.

Authorities haven't said how long the child may have been outside.
