HAMMOND, Ind. (WLS) — A healthy baby girl was safely surrendered at a Safe Haven baby box in Hammond, Indiana.

This was the second time since the box was installed in 2019 that a baby has been safely and anonymously surrendered. The baby box is available 24/7 at Franciscan Hospital, 5454 Hohman Ave.

The baby box features climate control and a silent alarm system that notifies first responders of a surrendered infant.

A total of three babies have been safely given up using a baby box in the state of Indiana this month.

Safe Haven Baby Boxes was founded by Monica Kelsey, who was abandoned as an infant.
