A couple who had been watching a friend's baby for weeks has dropped the child off at an Albuquerque fire station.
The couple had been caring for the two-month-old boy since his mother dropped him off. The mother never returned.
The child was dropped off Wednesday afternoon and was placed in state custody.
New Mexico's "safe haven law" allows mothers to drop off their babies at a clinic or hospital with no questions asked without getting in trouble.
The law would not apply in a case like this because it has to be the mother's idea.
