BRENTWOOD, Long Island — A 6-week-old baby girl in a shoebox was left on a porch of a Brentwood house Thursday night, police said.

Franklin, Ulloa, 14, was inside his house on Washington Avenue when he heard a baby’s cries coming from outside shortly before 9 p.m., police said. When he walked out to his rear porch, he found a shoebox. He took a closer look and saw a baby girl wrapped in a blanket with a bottle of milk inside the box.

Ulloa brought the baby inside and called 911.

The baby girl was taken to the hospital and doctors said she was in good health, according to police. It’s unclear who left the infant there and who her parents are.
