ORLANDO, Fla. – An investigation continues Monday after a baby boy was left in a shoe box at an Orange County apartment complex.

The newborn was found inside a Converse shoe box Saturday afternoon at the Fusion Apartments on Silver Star Road near Hiawassee Road. The complex was formerly known as Bella Vista Place.

Sarah Nazario told News 6 she was waiting on a package to arrive when she found the baby on a doorstep across the hall and called 911.

“He was just a brand new, fresh baby,” she said. “I open my door, and I saw the baby. I saw him in a box. His little foot was sticking out of the box. I saw him wiggle his foot — it’s a real baby, he’s alive, I need to do something about it, so that’s when I called 911.”
