The child is hospitalized in good condition and is expected to fully recover.

Fuentes told the Fresno Bee her umbilical cord was still attached.

"He was approached by a female driving a white, smaller SUV".

As he got closer, he was horrified to realize it was a baby lying on its back, crying. "It was just an very bad situation", Fuentes 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". Baby was squirming and you could hear it screaming too through the vehicle.

Sheriff's officials say a man walking around 4:30 a.m. Monday was approached by a woman in a white SUV who asked him to take her baby. The pair put the infant in the woman's auto where the heating was on, and discovered the uncut umbilical cord. The baby - a girl - is thought to have been about 10 hours old, according to the San Francisco Gate.

This year's anniversary come as tensions are rising with the US and Iran is grappling with re-imposed USA sanctions . Extensive fireworks displays were held across Tehran on Sunday night, timed to coincide with the demonstrations.

The baby was taken to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Valley Children's Hospital for treatment and is doing well, according to a statement by Madera County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities are seeking the mother. They are searching for a Hispanic woman in her 20s who reportedly asked a man if "he could take her child" a short time earlier.

Officials said the newspaper carrier took the baby inside his auto and called 911.

When California Highway Patrol Officer Alfred Madina arrived on the scene, he wrapped the baby in a blanket. Parents or persons with lawful custody can safely surrender an infant within 72 hours of birth, with no questions asked, at designated safe drop-off sites.

Anyone with information can contact the Sheriff's Office at 559-675-7770.

Authorities are trying to identify the person who left the baby in the roadway.
