A man who was walking his dog in the Diamond Lake region of Michigan recently found an abandoned infant. The baby girl was discovered on the side of a dirt road and was only a few hours old.
According to the Good Samaritan, identified as Jeff Kopp, his dog, Bobby saw the child first and she wasn’t crying at the time. Kopp explained “He brought me over.. and there’s when I saw what looked like a rabbit at first.”
He later told reporters the infant was in plain sight, resting under a satellite dish.
Local deputies claim the baby had some ‘bumps and bruises’ but she was breathing . Investigators determined the mother is a 14 or 15 year girl who lives on the same street where the child was abandoned.
She and her daughter were taken to a nearby hospital where their conditions are listed as fair. It’s not clear if the young mother will face charges.
Child Protective Services will decide who is going to take over custody of the baby when she is discharged from the hospital. As for Kopp, he feels fortunate his dog was with him, especially since the walk they went on is in a different direction from where they usually go.
Bobby is responsible for pulling Kopp right to the child and potentially saving her life.
