Infant successfully surrendered to Lexington Medical Center
LEXINGTON, S.C. (WIS) - Officials say a baby was surrendered to Lexington Medical Center under Daniel’s Law.
Daniel’s Law (Safe Haven for Babies Act) allows parents to surrender their newborn baby to a designated location in order to prevent people from abandoning newborns in dangerous conditions.
The baby girl was surrendered on January 21 and weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was 20 inches long.
Lexington County DSS took custody of the baby and placed her into a licensed foster home.
A permanency planning hearing is scheduled for March.
