A tiny infant was found buried alive under asphalt and loose dirt near a southern California. The baby girl was between 24- and 36-hours-old when she was found, according to police.
The newborn was found when two sisters heard her crying as they walked on a bike path. The siblings called police. The infant had been hidden under the path debris and was swaddled in what looked like a hospital blanket, reports Huffington Post. She was removed from the hole and found to be “cold to the touch,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in the statement.
The baby’s mother, identified as Porche Washington, 33, “was arrested after officers received tips from the public,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department revealed in a Facebook post.
“The child is now in stable condition,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Bob Boese told reporters.
