Baby found in middle of California road with umbilical cord still attached

first_imgKFSN-TV(MADERA, Calif.) — Police are searching for a woman who allegedly left a newborn baby lying in the middle of a rural California road in frigid temperatures.The Madera County Sheriff’s Office in central California said a newspaper delivery person found the newborn baby girl early Monday morning, lying “on the center line of a roadway” with her umbilical cord still attached.The newspaper carrier said he took the baby into his vehicle to keep the child warm and dialed 911 immediately.“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.The baby was wrapped in a blanket and wearing a one-piece flannel pajama set, Pogue said. She was transported to a local hospital and was said to be in good condition.Authorities estimated the baby was on the road for a matter of minutes.A witness said he encountered a woman with a baby near the scene, just minutes before the infant was found.He said the woman approached him with the infant in her arms and begged him to take the child.“He was approached by a female driving a white, smaller SUV. This female got out of her car, asked the man if he could help her and asked him to take her child,” Pogue said. “The man directed her to the fire station and the Valley Children’s Hospital down the street and suggested she take the baby there.”The witness described the suspect as a Hispanic woman in her early 20s, who was driving a smaller white SUV, Pogue said. The suspect could face felony charges of child endangerment and possibly attempted murder, he said.Pogue said the baby was “cold” when she was rescued, but she’s expected to recover.“Luckily, she was discovered early enough that she’ll make a full recovery,” Pogue. “We’d like to remind everyone that there are many safe surrender sites that will allow someone to surrender a newborn child without any questions asked.”He said anyone with information about a potential suspect should contact the Madera County Sheriff’s Office immediately.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

See how Lionel Messi destroyed Leganes players from centre line to win penalty for Barcelona [VIDEO]

first_imgFootball fans are pretty used to Lionel Messi’s brilliance on the field by now.But every now and then, the Argentine does something that makes you watch in awe.Fans were given another taste of the “Messi Magic” on Tuesday night in Barcelona’s 2-0 win over Leganes in La Liga.Youngster Ansu Fati had put the Catalans ahead just before the end of the first half.In the 67th minute, Messi picked up the ball in the centre circle and went on a run that would probably be mind-blowing had we not seen him do it hundreds of times before.His dummy helped him beat his first marker before he slipped the ball through the legs of the second.He then showed that he wasn’t all skill, displaying some strength as well, as he proceeded to hold both of them off.Messi darted past a couple more players before exchanging passes inside the box.He then went down under a challenge, prompting the referee to blow his whistle for a penalty, which the Barcelona star converted.Messi is now one goal away from 700 career goals but it’s quite amazing how many are moments of brilliance like this one.Take a look at the video below: The man is a freak. We’re all lucky to have been alive at the same time as him 🐐— Tom Stanwix (@tomstan9) June 17, 2020 The greatest— Robert (@Robert8oneill) June 17, 2020 Unreal play— Stu Reed (@SuperReedy1871) June 17, 2020center_img A second, closer look at Messi’s run2012 Messi is back. pic.twitter.com/aeoKsErpkR— Charlie (@ftblcharIie) June 17, 2020Reaction to the move has been massive with many people overwhelmed by the player’s skill.Here Messi come on all lives matter— scott mac (@scottmac10) June 17, 2020 Those people have families to go home to FFS 🤣— Bridgey (@Bridgey1982) June 17, 2020last_img read more

Low scoring spree at Men’s County Finals

first_img Somerset and Staffordshire grabbed the early advantage in a low-scoring foursomes session on the first day of the English Men’s County Finals at Trevose, Cornwall.Somerset lead Hampshire 2-1 and Staffordshire are 2.5-0.5 against Northumberland after a series of games which were spattered with birdies and eagles. Downwind shots on a bright and breezy morning were eye-catching, for example on the 5th where players were managing about 350 yards off the tee.Somerset set the scoring tone when England international Josh Hilleard and partner Jamie Clare  covered the first nine holes in four-under par. They were 4up at the turn and went on to win 5/4. Between them the two pairs amassed 10 birdies.The second game was similar, featuring 11 birdies and an eagle before Hampshire’s Billy McKenzie and Tom Robson won 3/1. They were four up with four to play, but Somerset hit back with birdies on 15 and 16. Hampshire, however, found the answer with their own birdie three on 17 to take the point.In the third game Somerset’s Tom Sloman and Thomas Plumb got ahead early on but were pulled back to all square after 10 and briefly dropped behind after Hampshire birdied 15. They immediately struck back, returning to 1up after a winning par on 14 and a birdie on the 338-yard 15th, where their drive finished pin-high. They stayed ahead for the remaining holes.In the other match the top game, between Northumberland’s Phil Ridden and Andy Minnikin and Staffordshire’s Gian-Marco Petrozzi and Lewis Pearce, included three eagles – and a tremendous tussle on the back nine. Northumberland were ahead for most of the game, but Staffordshire’s eagle two on 15 squared matters and the teams shared the point.Staffordshire proved remarkably strong finishers in the next game. Jake Whalley and Tom Hewitt got back to all square with a birdie on 11, moved one ahead with a par on 14, got to 2up when they holed out of a greenside bunker on 15 for an eagle two and claimed their 3/2 win with a birdie two on the 16th.In the last game of the morning, Staffordshire’s Jack Gaunt and Ryan Brooks (pictured above) scorched ahead. After the 10th, which they eagled, they were 6up and six-under par. But Northumberland put up a great fight on the closing holes and, helped by three birdies, reduced the deficit to 2 holes before bowing out on the 17th.Image copyright Leaderboard Photography Tags: competitions, County Finals, Mens Team, Trevose 29 Sep 2017 Low scoring spree at Men’s County Finals last_img read more
