(Scroll down for video) Police in California, were called after two women heard a baby crying from underneath the asphalt of a sidewalk.
Evangelina McCrary of Los Angeles, was walking with her sister when she heard the cries of a baby from the ground close to her feet.
She asked her sister if she heard the sound. The sister believed it was a cat that fell into a small hole under the asphalt, which was covered with wood and rocks.
The women reached out to Angel Flores, who lives in the area, and together they went to see what was buried underneath the ground.
McCrary moved the sticks and rocks and found the newborn baby. They called the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and the baby was found wrapped in a hospital blanket.
Doctors believe that the baby was born 36 to 48 hours before she was found.
The baby was taken to a hospital and is said to be in stable condition. Police are looking for the baby’s parents who are either black or Hispanic.
