“I said, ‘Please tell me that’s not what we think it is,’” she said. “You see this in movies. This isn’t real life … Who puts a baby on the side of an interstate?”

The car seat was placed in the grass about 10 feet from the edge of Interstate-40 in Oklahoma. It also attracted the attention of several others, including a church van. Harrison said the baby was calm and appeared to be sleeping and a Good Samaritan, who stopped, changed the baby’s diaper.

Police also discovered nearly $6,000 in cash, a flash drive, social security cards and a birth certificate. They have since tracked down the mother, though it has not yet been decided if charges will be filed.

As for the baby, Harrison is just glad he was found safe.

“I think that church van was in the right place at the right time,” she said. “It’s just surreal.”
