VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a worker sorting trash at a Southern California recycling center found a dead baby girl on a conveyor belt.
The child's body, wrapped in a blanket, was discovered Thursday morning at the plant in Victorville.
There's no immediate word on the child's age, and it's unclear whether the baby was killed or was stillborn. An autopsy is planned.
Authorities say the recycling center serves residents and businesses in the High Desert area northeast of Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Mountains.
No other details were immediately available.
