A newborn baby boy was found in a dumpster in southeast Houston, Texas Tuesday morning.

Police say a worker at the Reserves at Windmill Lakes complex thought he heard a cat in the dumpster, but when he opened the trash bag, he found the baby inside.

He held the baby while other workers called 911.

Firefighters rushed the baby to Memorial Hermann Hospital in unknown condition, according to police, but he is expected to survive.
