TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima County sheriff's deputies say a baby has been found in the bathroom of a Tucson medical center.

Television station KVOA reports (http://bit.ly/VbXyGC) that the baby is being evaluated but appears to be in good health.

The discovery was made Tuesday afternoon at the Northwest Medical Center, which serves as a safe haven center for newborns.

Arizona's "Baby Safe Haven" law allows newborns 72 hours old or younger to be anonymously dropped off at a staffed fire station, a hospital, an adoption agency or some churches with no questions asked.
