Newaygo County Sheriff's deputies are currently on the scene where a newborn baby was abandoned shortly after birth.

Neighbors have told our friends at WZZM 13 that a man walking his dog discovered the baby Monday morning on the side of the road.

The baby was found in plain sight under a satellite dish; neighbors told WZZM that it was alive and its umbilical cord was still attached.

Newaygo County Sheriff's deputies have said that the baby had some bumps and bruises and was less than six hours old.

Authorities have since located the mother and both she and the child are hospitalized in fair condition at Gerber Hospital in Fremont.
