A baby was found on a street corner in Sheepshead Bay on Sunday night, police said.

Responding officers discovered a 1-month-old baby, fully clothed, without a parent or guardian in sight.
Emergency medical personnel took the baby to Coney Island Hospital in stable condition for observation, police said. The baby was later released into the custody of the Administration for Children's Services.
The baby's mother was later discovered on Avenue U and Coney Island Avenue, apparently intoxicated, police said.

She was also taken to Coney Hospital in stable condition.
Police have charged Savchuk with acting in a manner injurious to a child.
