Baby Found Abandoned on Side of Road With Cash and Birth Certificate

Some may say it was good luck, but the church youth group leader who was riding in a van full of members and his wife when he spotted an abandoned car seat along the side of the road thinks it was divine intervention.

Rodger Prater and his wife were returning from a day at an amusement park with members of their church youth group when they spotted a car seat left on the side of the road.

That car seat was holding a 1 month old baby who is now doing fine thanks to Prater being in the right place at the right time.

Prater and his wife Nancy were driving a van full of youth group members home from a day at an amusement park in Oklahoma when he noticed a car seat sitting on the side of the busy interstate.

The youth group leader told PEOPLE he couldn’t believe his eyes when he spotted the car seat sitting alone alongside the roadway.

“I couldn’t fathom it at first,” he says. “Then the little boy’s feet moved. I told my wife under my breath, ‘I think I see a baby.’ She said, ‘What?’”
