UMDNJ Hospital: 'Mystery patient' has been claimed

UMDNJ Hospital officials say someone has stepped forward and claimed a "mystery patient."

"Pedro," as he was called, was found last month in the Ironbound section of Newark on the corner of Avenue P and Foundry Street.

The hospital sought help from the public identifying the man.

Due to privacy laws, the hospital cannot release any information about the person who stepped forward to claim him.
