Baby found abandoned in middle of California road, umbilical cord still attached

A police hunt is ongoing for a woman who allegedly left a newborn baby lying on a road in California.

According to ABC News, a newborn baby girl was discovered early on Monday morning with her umbilical cord still attached. The Madera County Sheriff’s Office in central California confirmed that a newspaper delivery person had spotted the infant in frigid temperatures “on the center line of a roadway”.

The newspaper carrier took the baby into his vehicle to keep her safe, before calling 911 to alert the authorities …

Tyson Pogue, Undersheriff for Madera County, stated at a press conference on Monday night: “It’s very fortunate that the child was discovered by the newspaper delivery person before she was seriously injured or even possibly killed.”

According to Pogue, the baby was wrapped in a blanket and dressed in a one-piece pajama set.

Thankfully she was in a good condition when she was transported to the local hospital – police think she was left on the road for a matter of minutes.

A witness at the scene claimed to have seen a woman with a baby near to where the infant was found mere moments before the paper carrier made the discovery.

Furthermore, it’s said the woman approached the witness and begged him to take her child.

“He was approached by a female driving a white, smaller SUV. This female got out of her car, asked the man if he could help her and asked him to take her child,” Pogue said. “The man directed her to the fire station and the Valley Children’s Hospital down the street and suggested she take the baby there.”

If found, the woman might face felony charges of child endangerment and possible attempted murder. The baby, meanwhile, is expected to make a total recovery.

Pogue continued: “Luckily, she was discovered early enough that she’ll make a full recovery. We’d like to remind everyone that there are many safe surrender sites that will allow someone to surrender a newborn child without any questions asked.”

Anyone with any information about a potential suspect is told to contact the Madera County Sheriff’s Office.
