NATIONAL BRIEFING / NEBRASKA

Another child left at hospital

October 29, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

A 15-year-old girl was abandoned by her father at an Omaha hospital, bringing to 22 the number of children left under the state's safe-haven law since it took effect in July.

The girl is a state resident, Children and Family Services division director Todd Landry said in a statement.

Nebraska's safe-haven law is the only one in the country that lets caregivers leave children as old as 18 at a state-licensed hospital without fear of prosecution.
