Surveillance video released by West Covina police showed a woman going into a Subway bathroom then leaving 10 minutes later on Feb. 15, 2016. Police said she gave birth , and a baby was recovered.

The airport authority also released photos of the scene and the handwritten letter found with the child.

“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,” the message said, scrawled on notebook paper in the voice of the newborn.

The woman may have acted under assumption she was protected by regulations designed for new mothers to leave newborns with authorities without penalty. The law, known as  the safe-haven law or Baby Moses law, allows newborns to be left at designated areas like hospitals and firehouses to prevent the deadly practice of stranding unwanted babies. It applies in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., though states have differing regulations.

In 1999, Texas became the first state to pass a safe-haven law following reports of 13 abandoned babies in the Houston area in the first 10 months of the year, which prompted public outcry and legislative action, according to a Nevada state government review of the legal framework. The concept has roots in a similar series of abandoned babies in Alabama in 1998.

Mother of 13 sons expecting another child A Michigan couple with 13 sons in is expecting another child and they won't know the sex until the baby is born.Kateri and Jay Schwandt's baby is due in April but the couple has decided to keep the baby's sex a surprise, just like they did the last few deliveries.

Police in the Philippines are looking for the woman who apparently gave birth to a baby in an airplane bathroom -- then stuffed the newborn into the trash. A security officer found the baby , who was barely alive but is now doing just fine.

But the airports are not among facilities commonly designated as safe havens. Criminal charges have yet to be determined, the Arizona Daily Star reported, and the woman remains unidentified.

“We would like to know who she is but we’ve exhausted our resources,” Butler told the paper. In a summary of the incident, Butler said the airport police are not actively looking for the woman but will pursue any leads they receive.

In Arizona, babies must be under 72 hours old and unharmed to be legally abandoned, and has led to 40 rescues in the state and more than 3,300 nationwide, the Arizona Safe Baby Haven Foundation says.

The group lists six hospitals in the state where “drawers” are used to discreetly leave babies behind, though none of them are in Tucson. At one of the hospitals, Banner Thunderbird Medical Center in Glendale, a drawer is connected to an internal alarm that alerts hospital staff of a dropped baby, according to a 2014 story by Raising Arizona Kids magazine.

“We hear stories where a baby is abandoned, or a mother who has had a baby doesn’t know what to do, doesn’t know who to turn to. There are a lot of different things that are probably going through a mother’s mind. There is a lot of fear,” said Kimberly Marshall, a nurse practitioner and co-founder of the Arizona Safe Baby Haven Foundation.
