A Florida woman left her baby boy at a rest stop after giving birth to him at a highway Saturday.

Marion County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) deputies rescued the baby from a women’s restroom located at Southbound Interstate -75. The infant was taken to a local hospital and his condition is stable now.

“It could have been horrible! It was cold, it was damp, it’s on a cement floor — there’s no telling how long he could have made it,” Todd Spicher, District Commander of the Dunnellon District told WESH2.

According to Spicher, an out-of-town couple called 911. “Thank God for those folks,” he added.

It is believed that there was a difference of about an hour from the time the baby was born and the time he was found. The sheriff’s office posted the information about the baby on its social media channel, Facebook and also reminded about the “safe haven” law.

The “safe haven” law in Florida allows parents to leave their newborn babies, who are not more than one week old, at any hospital, emergency medical services station, or with a firefighter at any fire station. Anyone who may have information on the baby was asked to call Detective Billy Burleson at 352-368-3542 or Crime Stoppers of Marion County at 352-368-STOP.

In another incident, a woman gave birth to a baby girl on the side of the road in central Minnesota on Christmas morning.

According to a report in the CBS Minnesota, the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office had tweeted about the child being born in a vehicle on the side of the road along Highway 8 in the south of Chisago City. The officials congratulated the new mom and dad and also informed that the baby girl was absolutely fine.

According to reports, an ambulance reached to help the family about 10 minutes after the baby girl was born. Earlier, this month a baby boy was delivered on the side of Highway 17 in Brunswick County, Carolina .

Baby Kaleb, was born on the side of a highway when his mom Katie Deanda was taking her elder son to school in the morning Dec.1. She started having contractions and her husband had already gone for work. So she called her sister, Lauren St George, to take her to the hospital as quickly as possible. But the baby was out before they could reach the hospital.

Talking about her sister’s commendable job to a local publication WECT6, Deanda said, “We knew we couldn’t go any further so we stopped, she checked me, and when she did, the water broke, he was out and it was in less than two minutes. She just stepped into the role and took care of him. She checked his vital signs, she tied off his chord with a shoe string. She did an amazing job.”
