The man advised her to go to the children's hospital or the fire station before she drove away, Pogue said.

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

A stricken mother begged strangers to take her newborn baby - then dumped the girl in the middle of a freezing road with her umbilical cord still attached.

The woman invited Fuentes and the baby into her heated auto, where the two chose to unzip its soiled flannel onesie. "OK, you know, this is a baby".

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

KFSN-TV reports the hours-old baby was wearing only a onesie when a newspaper carrier found her before dawn Monday on the center line of the road in Madera County. "I gotta get out there, '" he said.

The baby was taken to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Valley Children's Hospital for treatment and is doing well, according to a statement by Madera County Sheriff's Office. Although the baby is in good condition, she was admitted to the NICU. He referred her to a nearby fire station and hospital and left the area. The carrier immediately brought the baby to his vehicle to try and warm her up.

Authorities are now looking for the newborn's mother. She is described as a Hispanic woman in her early 20s who left the scene in a small, white SUV.

"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.

She was said to have been driving a white SUV but details of her physical description are "unknown".

In California, parents or persons with lawful custody can safely surrender an infant within 72 hours of birth, no questions asked, under the Safely Surrendered Baby Law.
