 Original story:  A baby that was found along side a Maryland road late Saturday night possible fell off of the car.  (It was later found by police the baby was put there on purpose).

Just before midnight a call came into the police that a baby in a car seat carrier was found in the 900 block of Druid Hill Avenue in Pasadena.  Neighbors saw the car carrier alongside the road and thought it was empty and were shocked to find a baby sitting in the seat.

Because of the scuff marks on the carrier and a diaper baby and formula found near by, police are theorizing that the baby fell off a moving car.  The baby was thought to be around 2-3 months old. 

The baby’s picture was posted on social media and a woman came forward claiming to be the mother on Sunday.

On the Anne Arundel County Police Dept. Facebook page:  “Woman who came forward has been confirmed as mother of the infant. Investigation continues as we work with the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office.”

  1. There have been numerous cases involving mothers leaving their kids. How could someone leave a baby on the side of the road? If you don't want your children, then you need to make sure the baby is with a caring adult. Have some common sense and stop thinking a out yourself all the time.
