Newborn Ok After Thrown From Car

From Staff And Wire Reports

A newborn baby thrown from a moving car was in good condition Wednesday after being treated for hypothermia, officials said.

Two 10-year-old boys told police they were riding their bicycles Tuesday afternoon saw a man toss the baby, wrapped in a blanket, out the window after nearly hitting them with the car. The baby landed in a ditch.

The boys flagged down another motorist who called for help. The baby’s umbilical cord had not been clamped and was still bleeding when the infant was found, said Jefferson Township Fire Chief Larry Dalton.

The infant boy was treated for hypothermia, or low body temperature, and was listed in good condition at Children’s Medical Center. The baby had not been identified.
