PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) -- Police say a woman placed a 2-week-old girl on railroad tracks in Pueblo and ran away Friday, but two city workers immediately rescued the infant, who appeared to be unharmed.
The baby was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
Witnesses told police two trains were on the track but neither was moving. It wasn't clear how far the trains were from the baby.
Witnesses detained the woman until officers arrived. Police say she was incoherent and was taken into custody for questioning and evaluation.
Police didn't say whether she was arrested on criminal charges.
Police identified the woman in custody as Jessica Sloan, 31.
The police statement said Sloan was wanted on several arrest warrants, including one for failure to appear in court on a theft charge.
