A nativity scene at in a Queens, New York City church contained a very realistic prop!
According to reports, a church custodian found a newborn baby crying in the nativity set on Monday after he came back from lunch at around 1 p.m.!
Authorities said the custodian found the infant boy lying inside the manger wrapped in towels. Fortunately, the baby was then examined at Jamaica Hospital where he was found to be healthy and in stable condition.
This might seem like something out of an old biblical tale, but even today New York practices the Abandoned Infant Protection Act — a safe haven law that allows people to anonymously leave newborns at churches, hospitals, police, or fire stations.
