Philadelphia police say a woman who gave birth to a baby girl early Sunday morning wrapped her in a blanket, placed her outside and then woke up her mom, claiming to have heard the sounds of a baby crying.

According to police, officers were called to a home around 5:30 a.m. on the 2900 block of N. Bonsall Street, where they found a woman holding the newborn girl.
