A 9-month-old baby is in stable condition after being discovered with a hypodermic needle sticking out of his leg.

The child was transported to the hospital Wednesday evening after being found by police in a home on the 200 block of Green Lane in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia.

Police Chief Inspector Scott Small says the baby was in bed with his father when he rolled over and was punctured by the needle.

Investigators are trying to determine what the residue found in and on the needle is and if the needle has been used before.

Small says the Department of Human Services has been notified. No charges have been filed.
