Accordingly, The Fontana Police Fontana Herald News Department officers recently rescued an infant who was living in poor conditions, according to a Facebook post by the P.D. Fontana Herald News
On April 6, officers were patrolling in the wash area at the end of Juniper Avenue when they observed a woman smoking narcotics next to her one-month-old baby. The woman and baby were living in the flood control channel.
Due to the deplorable living conditions, and the extreme heat on that day, the officers took possession of the baby for her safety and well-being, police said. Fire Department medics checked her out, and once cleared, police contacted Child Family Services for assistance.
