Police in Houston say the remains of a premature baby were unearthed at a trailer home park in the southwest area of the city.
Officers responded to a call about 6:30 a.m that infant remains were possibly on the property, according to KTRK-TV of Houston.
The mother told Houston police Assistant Chief Chandra Hatcher that she went to a hospital after experiencing severe stomach pain. She told the medical staff she had buried her baby near her home.
Hospital staff immediately notified police, who headed to the mobile home park.
"I really just want to make sure that everybody knows that people find themselves in all types of situations and if its a possibility that a child is born and the conditions and situations are not suitable to keep that child or care for that child, the Baby Moses law is still in effect," Hatcher said. "They can take that baby to a fire station or an area hospital and give that child over to someone."
