A homeless man is being hailed as a hero after discovering an abandoned newborn baby on the side of the road.

When Mark Blevins went out early in the morning to search for recycling materials to make some extra money, he never expected to find a baby.

As he approached the Lakewood, California neighborhood he frequented, in the near distance he could hear soft cries.

There, near a brick wall, Mark saw an infant wrapped in a soft blanket with its umbilical cord still attached.

Although he only had a bicycle for transportation, Mark knew he had to act fast to get the baby to the hospital, so he cradled the baby in his arms while riding the bike.

He asked his friend Vance Cobb to help out, so he joined him on the way and the two took the baby to a nearby fire station.

Paramedics soon arrived and the baby was taken to the hospital for a full examination.

Police said when they returned to the scene where the baby was found, they discovered a woman they believed to be the baby’s mother.

Thankfully, the baby is doing well one year later thanks to the heroic efforts of Good Samaritan Mark.
