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

Television station KVOA reports 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.
