JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities are searching for the mother of a newborn baby boy who was found in a pile of trash in Jersey City.

Hudson County prosecutors say the child was found Saturday afternoon near the city's McGinley Square neighborhood. The boy was taken to Jersey City Medical Center, where a spokesman tells The Newark Star-Ledger the boy was breathing on his own.

Prosecutors did not disclose how long the child may have been outside.

Residents who live nearby say neighborhood children heard crying and saw movement in a pile of trash, then alerted the building superintendent, who called police.

Building superintendent Arturo Rivas tells The Jersey Journal he usually kicks kids out of the courtyard where the baby was found, but this time he's glad the teens were there.
