A shocking discovery is now going viral online – a baby was found in a car seat on the side of the road, abandoned in the sweltering heat.
The baby was rescued by a church group whose members spotted him near Interstate 40 and Choctaw Road.
According to the Facebook post, a church group was on their way home on I-40 east of Choctaw, when they noticed the car seat on the side of the busy highway.
A woman who wants to remain anonymous said it was her church group from Ada which spotted the sleeping baby as they were headed home from Frontier City.
“He walks behind the van and he grabs a car seat with a baby in it,” the woman said.
The boy, no more than a few months old, was in his baseball onesie with only a pacifier at his side and no note or explanation.
“I couldn’t believe people were that evil. It was 90 degrees outside,” the woman said.
Church members called Oklahoma City police who took the baby into custody. Police said they responded but will not provide details until Monday.
Church members are thankful the little guy is now in safe hands.
