On the morning of Wednesday, December 21, 2011, a newborn baby girl was found in a cardboard box on the street in the city’s Strawberry Mansion section. The infant, just several hours old with the umbilical chord still attached, was covered in blankets lying in the box. Two men were cleaning the streets when one of them picked up the box to place it near a trash pile and heard the baby start to cry. Police were immediately notified and the baby was rushed to St. Christopher’s Hospital to undergo evaluation. Hospital staff named her Baby Noel.
