A newborn baby boy with the placenta and the umbilical cord still attached was abandoned in someone’s backyard. The little one was exposed to the shining sun and could easily die if an angel in the form of a 9-year-old girl wouldn’t found it by chance.
9-year-old Elysa from Indiana was playing in the backyard when she heard strange noises. She assumed that one of the pigs might have escaped so she decided to go and check. As she was slowly moving around, she noticed tiny pink legs.
At that moment, Elysa started screaming and rushed to the house to alert her mom about the “strange” creature. “It just freaked me out, I didn’t know what it was,” she told CBS 2’s Brad Edwards.
The mother, Heidi Laub, went to check what was going on and that’s when she realized there was a baby near one of the bushes.
“That’s when she was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s a baby,’ and I was like, ‘What?!” Elysia recalled.
“I just saw pink legs kicking away,” Elysia said. “I knew it was alive and I knew we had something. I could not second guess myself. I knew we had to get help.”
Luckily, the little one was taken to the St. Anthony’s Hospital where doctors confirmed nothing was wrong with him. They said the baby was just a day old.
Authorities at the Lake County Sheriff’s office say Elysa is the baby’s guardian angel.
“I didn’t do this myself,” Elysia said. “Somebody helped me — God. He put me in that place.”
“If I wasn’t there and God didn’t tell my brain – if my brain didn’t make me go over there, we would find a dead baby in the yard this afternoon,” this precious girl added. “It would be much worse and much different.”
Thanks to Elysa, the baby got a second chance in life.
