Coin-Operated-Locker Babies

Coin-operated-locker babies is a type of child abuse found primarily in Japan in the 1970s and 1980s. In these cases, unwanted babies are left in public lockers in the belief (often erroneous) that such lockers are regularly checked by attendants and so the infant will be found quickly. Used in this manner, lockers serve as an unofficial sort of baby hatch, often with disastrous results.
