LOS ANGELES — A woman surrendered her newborn baby at a fire station in Koreatown under California’s Safely Surrendered Baby Law, authorities said Wednesday morning.

The 21-year-old woman, who did not want to be identified, turned the child over to firefighters at Fire Station 13 on the 2400 block of Pico Boulevard about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

“At this point, the baby was given a full assessment and was transported to the hospital in good care,” LAFD Battalion Chief Scott LaRue told ABC7, which reported the child was born about two hours before being surrendered.
