Girl Horrified By What She Finds In Her Backyard

A young girl went out near the family pigpen and saw something that shocked her. She ran screaming for her mom. Thankfully, her discovery saved the day.

Elysia Laub, a 9-year-old Indiana girl, found a human baby in the family pig pen. The baby was wrapped in a towel with the umbilical cord and placenta still attached. It is estimated that the baby was less than a day old. Had Elysia not passed by, the baby might have died of exposure.

"It just freaked me out. I didn't know what it was," Elysia told CBS Chicago.

The little girl screamed for her mother. "That's when she was like, 'Oh my god it's a baby,' and I was like, 'whaaaat?!" Elysia said.

Lake County Sheriff John Buncich says Elysia's discovery came none too soon, and that the little baby was lucky. "We're considering her the guardian angel of that infant," he told CBS Chicago.

But Elysia says that it wasn't her doing. "God. He put me in that place."

The newborn was rushed to the hospital and is expected to recover. Where the baby came from is still unknown.
