Tragic note left with baby boy abandoned at USA airport

The baby was left on a changing table in one of the airport's changing rooms with a note reading, "Please help me".

A woman believed to have left her newborn baby in an Arizona airport bathroom didn't realize she was pregnant, according to a heartbreaking note she left with the infant. It begs whoever finds him to turn him over to authorities so they can find the boy a good home.

The note concluded: "I just want what is best for him and it is not me. Please, I'm sorry." According to the Washington Post, the baby appears healthy and has been taken by the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

An airport custodian saw the woman leave the restroom and asked her if she was okay after seeing a pool of blood on the floor.

But now, new details have emerged after police released surveillance footage showing a woman who is believed to be the abandoned child's mother.

Another custodian said they found bloody clothes at the bottom of a trash can, while a Delta Airlines employee told cops she noticed a woman "acting out of place sitting in the chairs next to Delta baggage claim".

The expectant mother walked into the airport, but later left the premises without her newborn baby after she gave birth to the child inside the restroom, airport authorities said. The child is now in the care of the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

The child was in good condition, authorities said.

But the airports are not among facilities commonly designated as safe havens.

"We would like to know who she is but we've exhausted our resources", Butler told the paper. Authorities haven't decided on criminal charges against the woman.

In Arizona, babies must be no more than 72 hours old and unharmed to be legally abandoned. "There is a lot of fear".
