When good samaritans came across a screaming 9-month-old baby boy in the middle of the road, they couldn’t believe their eyes. The small child was lying in the middle of Beaker Street in Utica, New York, alone and scared. There was no mother in sight, and cars had been passing by. They were unsure how long the terrified child had laid there, alone and frightened.
One of the Samaritans recorded the incident on his smartphone, while the others attempted to soothe the child. Towards the end of his recording, a woman approaches, screaming that that is her baby. The mother, Ledrika Ford, claimed that they had secured the child in their backseat when they left Beaker street and had noticed her missing a while later when they checked.
The baby was taken to a local hospital to be checked out following the incident. Police have since taken the baby from her care, along with two other young girls, and placed them with Child Protective Services. The mother has since been charged with Child Endangerment. Hopefully, everything works out for this adorable baby after everything he’s been through.
