BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WAVE3) — A baby was found apparently abandoned in a cardboard box outside a fire station in Warren County.

WAVE3 reports here that the Warren County Sheriff’s office said it received a call Saturday morning around 6:45 a.m.

Officials said a Good Samaritan found the baby outside the Gott Fire Station.

"Well, I looked up and I seen a man all erratic," said Jessica Barber, an employee at a business near the fire station. "He came in and he was like mumbling and trying to get something out and he wasn’t making any sense, like I couldn’t understand him. I told him to slow down and take a deep breath. He got out "baby, cardboard box, new baby."

The child was taken to an area hospital and is being treated.
