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

The California Highway Patrol's Alfred Medina holds the infant girl who was found in the town of Madera Ranchos

Authorities are trying to identify the person who abandoned the infant.

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.

Pogue said: 'He was approached by a female driving a white, smaller SUV.

Authorities rescued a newborn girl early on Monday after she was found lying on the road in California's Madera County.

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.

A newspaper carrier discovered the infant lying in the middle of a Madera County road just after 4 a.m., according to a news release from the CHP's Central Division Office.

It was dark, but Aurelio Fuentes Jr. could see the grass edging the roadside was frozen.

'I approached slowly next thing you know I see its red you can see the face I saw a face. But "as soon as I got out of the vehicle, I realized it was a real baby", he said.

"The man directed her to the fire station and the Valley Children's Hospital down the street and suggested she take the baby there". He refused, and pointed her toward a nearby hospital and fire station.

Paramedics took the infant to Valley Children's Hospital, where she is expected to make a full recovery, said officials. Although the baby is in good condition, she was admitted to the NICU.

California Safe Surrendered Baby law lets parents turn their babies over to police within 72 hours of the child's birth with no questions asked.

"It's very fortunate that the child was discovered by the newspaper delivery person before she was seriously injured or even possibly killed", Madera County Undersheriff Tyson Pogue said at a press conference Monday night.
