Abandoned boy to meet Texas fireman who saved him
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A Texas boy abandoned at a fire station as an infant has a wish for his 10th birthday: to meet the firefighter who saved him.
On Thursday evening, the boy was to celebrate his recent birthday by meeting Arlington firefighter Wesley Keck, riding on a fire truck and touring the station.
The state's Baby Moses law allows a parent to leave an unharmed infant up to 60 days old at a fire station or hospital with no questions asked. Child Protective Services then takes custody of the babies. All states have similar laws, but Texas was the first to create one, signing it into law in 1999. It took effect in 2001.
