Newborn with umbilical cord still attached found in middle of California roadway

CHP Officer Alfred Medina holding the baby girl after she was found

It's unclear how long the newborn had been left out in the road.

Fuentes told the Fresno Bee her umbilical cord was still attached.

The woman invited Fuentes and the baby into her heated auto, where the two chose to unzip its soiled flannel onesie.

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.

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

Officers arrived minutes later to find the baby. In an "awful, chilling, moment" came the realization: Fuentes was looking at a newborn baby girl wearing only a onesie with temperatures at "30 degrees, maybe even less". "There could've been coyotes, there's cars going by fast down that road", Mr Fuentes said.

Five found shot to death in Texas home
Five people were found shot and killed in a home in an unincorporated town in eastern Texas on Monday, police said. Polk County Sheriff's Office were called for help around 10:30 Monday morning.

Anyone with information on the case is being asked to contact the Madera County Sheriff's Office at 559-675-7770.

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

The baby was cold but otherwise believed to be in good condition.

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, USA outlet ABC News reported. Witnesses say she is possibly a young Hispanic woman in her early 20s. She was last seen fleeing the scene in the small SUV of unknown make or model, authorities said.

In California, parents or persons with lawful custody can safely surrender an infant within 72 hours of birth, no questions asked, under the Safely Surrendered Baby Law. Ironically, there was a staffed fire station within a mile or two, and Valley Children's Hospital is very nearby.
