The carrier, Aurelio Fuentes, told the Fresno Bee her umbilical cord was still attached. He saw that it was a baby dressed in a onesie without a diaper and lying on its back. Shortly after, another driver pulled up to asked Fuentes Jr. if he was OK. She asked him if everything was ok - and Fuentes responded that he just found a baby.

The baby was wearing a wet and soiled one-piece jumpsuit, according to witnesses, but appeared to be healthy and had apparently not been out in the near-freezing temperatures for too long.

"It's very fortunate that the child was discovered by the newspaper delivery person before she was seriously injured or even possibly killed", Pogue said. The pair unzipped the baby's flannel onsesie, and discovered the umbilical cord.

The child is hospitalized in good condition and is expected to fully recover.

The little girl was then rushed by ambulance to Valley Children's Hospital, where she remains in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit but is said to be "doing well".
