Police say they've found the mother of a newborn child who was discarded in the dumpster of a Houston apartment complex.

 

The 16-year-old girl is not being identified and was taken Tuesday to a hospital for observation. No immediate charge has been filed against her.

 

A maintenance worker taking out the trash Tuesday morning at the complex in southeast Houston notified police after hearing a noise and finding the newborn in a trash bag.

 

Police say the infant was breathing when taken to a Houston hospital. The child's condition is unknown but is expected to survive.

 

The infant was found with part of its umbilical cord still attached.

 

No other information was immediately available from authorities.
