Gosh and I thought a woman flushing her live hamster down the toilet at BWI airport was bad.
With hundreds of millions of passengers passing through US airports each year every issue and problem imaginable arises. People bring their baggage both literally and figuratively. All of life’s challenges that happen outside the airport happen inside it too.
Video footage from the Tucson airport last month shows a woman carrying her baby that was then abandoned at the airport.
The baby was found wrapped up on a changing table in a bathroom before security near the rental car counters. There was also “a green pair of lace underwear and a black pair of sweat pants, all with blood and bodily fluids” which presumably belonged to the woman. And there was a note with the baby,
Please help me.
My mom had no idea she was pregnant. She is unable and unfit to take care of me. Please get me to the authorities so they can find a good home.
I just want what is best for him and it is not me.
In Arizona it’s fully legal to leave a baby at a ‘safe haven’ location. The airport fire department happens to be a safe haven. The bathroom near rental car pickup not so much.
There have been a lot of questions after last night. If you feel you are unable to care for your newborn, there is a safe option. All TFD fire stations are a #SafeHaven #Tucson #Arizona pic.twitter.com/rz06LzwmLD
