Police are watching surveillance video of the bathroom, possibly trying to spot a woman who has gone into the bathroom, stayed in there for an unusually long time and comes out looking rather exhausted. According to Fox News, the baby was found by a cleaning crew after the arena cleared out. Nearly 10,000 people attended the show, so finding the mother will be like finding a needle in a haystack. Authorities are perplexed as to why a mother would do this given that South Carolina is a state which has enacted “safe haven” laws. In South Carolina, a baby can be dropped off at a fire station or police department and relinquished with no questions asked.
Police are asking medical personal to report to them if a woman comes into a hospital or doctor’s office, needing medical attention that would suggest that she’s recently given birth. The baby boy weighed in at approximately 6 lbs.
