A newborn baby was found in the middle of a California road. The weather was below freezing and she still had the umbilical cord attached.
A newspaper carrier made the discovery early Monday morning.
Quickly taking the baby – wearing a dirty onesie – into his car while calling nine-one-one.
The baby was then taken to valley children’s hospital.
She is currently doing well.
Police estimate the baby girl was out in the road for only a few minutes.
Authorities say they are now looking for a female suspect.
The California Highway Patrol says that the state’s “safely surrendered baby law” allows parents or persons with lawful custody to surrender a baby to a designated drop-off site within 72 hours of birth with no questions asked.
Officials say drop-off sites are usually hospitals or fire stations.
