On Saturday, at approximately 2:19 p.m., SFPD officers were dispatched to the 300 block of 34th Avenue at the Lincoln Park Golf Course in the Presidio regarding an apparent death, police said Monday.

Upon arrival, officers found the body of an infant and requested medical assistance. Medics pronounced the infant dead at the scene. The SFPD Homicide Division and the Medical Examiner’s Office are currently examining the case, police added.

Officials also said that because there are concerns about the health of the mother of the infant, anyone with information regarding Saturday’s incident should call the SFPD 24-hour tipline at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with "SFPD." You may remain anonymous.

In San Francisco, the "Safely Surrendered Baby Law" allows any adult with legal custody of a child who is either unwilling or unable to care for their newborn, the option to legally, confidentially and safely surrender that child to a hospital emergency room or another designated location within three days of birth, without criminal prosecution for child abandonment. 

All SFFD Fire Station Locations are safe surrender sites for newborn infants.
