Fuentes told the Fresno Bee her umbilical cord was still attached.
As he got closer, he was horrified to realize it was a baby lying on its back, crying. While Fuentes waited for first responders, a woman driving by asked if he needed help.
Officers arrived minutes later to find the baby.
"She got out of her vehicle and asked the man if he could help her", said Pogue.
Fuentes called authorities who told him to pick up the baby, which he did and discovered that it was only wearing a onesie without a diaper. The pair unzipped the baby's flannel onsesie, and discovered the umbilical cord.

Yahoo Lifestyle has reached out to the Madera County Sheriff's office for information on the baby and mother and will update this post when it responds.

Ironically, there was a staffed fire station within a mile or two, and Valley Children's Hospital is very nearby.
An investigation has been launched to find out who abandoned the newborn baby.
