The woman asked the man if he could take her child, deputies said.

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

A man delivering newspapers on Route 36 in Madera Ranchos, Calif., around 4:30 a.m. Monday made a chilling discovery: a newborn baby abandoned in the middle of the road.

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.

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. "OK, you know, this is a baby".

He said the umbilical cord was still attached to the infant.

Hospital workers believe the baby is less than 10 hours old.

The newspaper carrier found the child a short time later, and he wrapped the baby in a blanket before calling 911.
