Baby with umbilical cord still attached found in middle of California road

A newborn baby just hours old was found abandoned on a California country road in frigid temperatures, according to authorities.

'The man directed her to the fire station and the Valley Children's Hospital down the street and suggested she take the baby there'.

Fuentes, 21, initially thought the newborn was an animal, or perhaps a toy.

"Just before 4:00 a.m this morning, while on his route, a local newspaper carrier found a newborn baby girl lying in the middle of the road", California Highway Patrol's Central Division said Monday.

Indonesian cops apologise for using snake in Papua interrogation
An officer is shown on camera shoving the head of the snake into the suspect's face, which elicits a reaction of fear and panic. Indonesian police have admitted their officers terrorised a man with a snake after a video of the incident circulated online.


Fuentes called authorities who told him to pick up the baby, which he did and discovered that it was only wearing a onesie without a diaper. "OK, you know, this is a baby".

A Madera County Sheriff's Office spokesperson said: "It's very fortunate that the child was discovered by the newspaper delivery person before she was seriously injured or even possibly killed".

"She got out of her vehicle and asked the man if he could help her", said Pogue.

The little girl was in onesie pyjamas with her umbilical cord still attached.

Ormsby to take two-shot lead to Vic Open final day
On the course, things took a turn for the better a year later with a first win on the Challenge Tour in his native land. Overnight leader Wade Ormsby doubled 17 and missed his eagle chance on the 18th to force a play-off.


The newborn, who was only hours old, was rushed to Valley Children's Hospital and is now being treated at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Fuentes brought the girl into his auto, where he called 911.

The baby was taken to the nearest hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. They are searching for a Hispanic woman in her 20s who reportedly asked a man if "he could take her child" a short time earlier. He refused, and pointed her toward a nearby hospital and fire station. She was seen leaving the scene in a small, white SUV.

California's Safely Surrendered Baby Law allows parents or persons with lawful custody to safely surrender an infant within 72 hours of birth, with no questions asked, at designated safe drop-off sites.
