Abandoned Baby Found On The Side Of A Highway
Posted on September 26, 2017
A one-month-old baby found on the side of an Oklahoma highway in a car seat stuffed with $US5,500 in cash and a birth certificate is in state custody as authorities investigate why the boy was abandoned.
Oklahoma City police say a church group returning from an amusement park spotted the child on Saturday about 3 metres from the shoulder of Interstate 40. A Social Security card was also found with the baby.
Police say they havelocated the child's mother through family members and she's been taken to a hospital for evaluation.
The church's pastor credited divine intervention in finding the child, saying "God stepped in".
