LAKEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a baby girl found crawling across a busy New Jersey street was unharmed after a neighbor and passing motorist came to her aid.
The child was spotted around 5 p.m. Saturday in Lakewood.
The motorist, Cory Cannon of Eatontown, told the Asbury Park Press he saw the girl on Joe Parker Road and initially thought she was a toy. But when he saw the child moving, he got out of his car to stop traffic.
At that same time, a neighbor got the baby and returned the child home.
