A snowy road

According to the Fresno Bee, a Fresno Bee newspaper carrier was delivering papers in Madera - traveling at about 5 miles per hour - when he noticed the newborn baby in the middle of the dark road.

A witness said he had encountered a woman with a baby just minutes before the infant was found who had begged him to take the child, United States outlet ABC News reported.

Initially, he thought it was some kind of animal before realising it was a baby girl.

As he got closer, he was horrified to realize it was a baby lying on its back, crying.

I had my radio low, thank god.' He told the Fresno Bee.

The hours-old baby girl was dressed in a soiled onesie and left "on the centerline of a roadway". Although the baby is in good condition, she was admitted to the NICU. The pair put the infant in the woman's auto where the heating was on, and discovered the uncut umbilical cord.

Authorities are seeking the mother.




Officials said the newspaper carrier took the baby inside his vehicle and called 911.

A witness told her to take the baby to the hospital before leaving the scene.

Pogue had instructed the woman to go to a fire station or to nearby Valley Children's Hospital to surrender the child safely, but that did not happen.

Minutes before Fuentes called for help, a woman approached a man walking his dog in the area, the Madera County Sheriff's Office said.

The woman was described as a "Hispanic female adult, possibly in her 20s". Yahoo Lifestyle has reached out to the Madera County Sheriff's office for information on the baby and mother and will update this post when it responds. The sites are typically hospitals or fire stations.

The California Safely Surrendered Baby Law was passed in 2001 to prevent the death of newborns abandoned by their parents.
