Elmira police say neighbors checking out a noise Tuesday found a baby whose feet were sticking out of the bag. They called 911 and tended to the child until police and emergency crews arrived.
Officials say the baby is in stable condition at a hospital.
The Star-Gazette reports police say Hoyt left the baby near bushes in a backyard last weekend.
She’s being held in the Chemung County Jail. Her public defender wasn’t available for comment.
