Baby Found On Doorstep

Last updated on Wednesday, January 26, 2011

(MERRILLVILLE, IN) - A newborn baby girl is healthy after being found on a doorstep in Merrillville.

Angela Croarkin stepped outside her home to take a smoke break Friday night when she noticed a cardboard box on her porch.

She told her husband, who is a Merrillville Police Officer, and he opened the box to find the newborn wrapped in a sweater in the single digit temperatures.

The full-term baby girl is doing well at Methodist Hospital's Southlake Campus in Merrillville.
