    Sad story...humourous interlude though:

    Abandoned baby found on Martha's Vineyard
    By Associated Press, 6/22/2004 18:10

    TISBURY, Mass. (AP) A baby found abandoned on the back steps of a Martha's Vineyard church early Tuesday morning remained in critical condition at a Boston hospital in the evening, a spokeswoman for the Department of Social Services said.

    A woman out walking in Tisbury between 5 and 6 a.m. saw a blanket and determined that a baby was wrapped inside, Denise Monteiro said.

    The woman, who at first thought the infant was dead, called 911. Police and emergency services technicians revived the hours-old baby boy, who was suffering from hypothermia and hypoxia, a shortage of oxygen.

    The baby was taken to Martha's Vineyard Hospital before being flown to Children's Hospital in Boston.

    ''He was blue and purple, the EMS did an amazing job,'' Monteiro said.

    Emergency responders also had to contend with the church sprinkler system turning on while they were trying to revive the baby. One of the police sat on the closest sprinkler head to keep the baby and his rescuers dry while the effort continued, DSS Commissioner Harry Spence said.

    The full-term infant, dubbed Baby Vinnie, will be placed in a foster home once he is stabilized, she said.

    State and local police are trying to determine who left the baby at the church. Because Massachusetts does not have a safe haven law, the parents could face charges, Monteiro said.

    Hey guys, I think they are refering to the LAWN SPRINKLERS for watering the grass, not the fire sprinklers.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    LOL...When I first read the article I was wondering about that. I was envisioning a police officer upside-down with a sprinkler up his butt and trying to figure out how it would be possible.
