Texas Boy Abandoned As Infant Meets Firefighter Who Saved Him

ARLINGTON (November 15, 2012)--A Texas boy who was abandoned at a fire station as an infant had a wish for his 10th birthday.

He wanted to meet the firefighter who saved him.

He got that chance Thursday, meeting the firefighter, riding on a fire truck and touring the station.

Arlington firefighter Wesley Keck said he he's excited about seeing the boy for the first time since finding a baby carrier outside the station on a cold morning in November 2002.

The state's Baby Moses law allows a parent to leave an unharmed infant up to 60 days old at a fire station or hospital with no questions asked.

All states have similar laws, but Texas was the first to create one, signing it into law in 1999.

It took effect in 2001.
