Georgia authorities are searching for information after they say an abandoned newborn girl was found alive in a plastic grocery bag.
Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Freeman called it “divine intervention” that the baby was found in good condition.
The newborn was found along a road in Forsyth County at about 10 p.m Thursday, Freeman said at a news conference on Friday.
Residents heard the baby’s cry and called 911, he said.
“It was obvious that the baby was a newborn. We believe within hours of our discovery that the baby had been born,” he said.
She was rushed to a hospital “where surprisingly, the baby was in good condition,” Freeman said.
