LEWIS CENTER, Ohio - Paramedics believe a newborn boy who was found abandoned in a grassy area near a supermarket on Tuesday was discovered not long after his birth.

A woman was passing a Meijer store, located along U.S. Route 23, at about 1:30 p.m. and saw the naked boy lying in grass about six feet from the road, 10TV's Maureen Kocot reported.

The driver called 911 and firefighters from Orange Township responded.

Paramedics told 10TV News that the boy's umbilical cord was still attached. They also speculated that the infant may not have survived lying there for another hour, Kocot reported.

The child was transported to Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus.

Authorities said the boy was expected to make a full recovery, Kocot reported.

Investigators said they were checking nearby businesses to see if surveillance video could lead to whoever abandoned the child.

They also said they were searching for a white car that was apparently seen in the area. No make or model was available.

"Right now it's too early to jump ahead of ourselves," said Delaware County Sheriff Walter Davis III . "We need to find out who the parents are (and) how the baby got out here."

Wow. At least the baby was still alive! Thank God for that. How can someone do that?? If you really want to abandon your baby, you can take it to the police station or fire station or a hospital with no questions asked!

Wow that is so sad. Why have a baby just to dump it on the side of the road. Why not give it up to someone who will love it.

People are a$$holes!!! There is no way that someone has been living under a rock all this time, and doesn't know about the safe haven law, or whatever it is called. They will catch this person, and they should put the mother out there, naked, and leave her there, too.

That is awful. I saw a show about stuff like that, people throwing their babies in trash cans and stuff because they "freaked out." HELLO! Go to a hospital and if you absolutely do not want the baby, put it up for adoption! There are plenty of people who would kill for a healthy baby of their own!
