SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - Authorities in Shawnee say a phone call to dispatchers led to the discovery of twins left in a pickup truck outside a fire station.
The twin boy and girl were found about 6:30 a.m. Saturday in the back of the truck owned by fire Lt. Chuck Tade that was parked outside the station.
Tade says dispatchers received a phone call just after 1 a.m. but couldn't understand what the caller was saying. He says it took until about 6 a.m. to determine the caller said two babies were left in a pickup outside a fire station.
A dispatcher who was by then off-duty began driving to city fire stations and found the infants at the second station she checked.
The babies are now in state custody.
