Newborn baby draped in rosary is found alive inside a drawer of an abandoned dresser in Chicago alley

A newborn baby boy was miraculously discovered alive inside a drawer of a discarded dresser in a Chicago alley.

A passerby found the infant in the dresser drawer at around 8am on Tuesday, August 10, and called paramedics to the 2300-block of North Oak Park Avenue in Chicago's Montclare neighborhood.

The Good Samaritan, who did not want to be identified, said the boy was wrapped in rosary beads and his mouth was filled with vomit.

The woman said she was walking along the block when the dresser drawers caught her eye, reported ABC 7 Chicago. She approached the furniture, planning to recycle the handles on the drawers, and found the baby.

"I put my finger on the little foot, to just to see he was moving," The Good Samaritan told NBC Chicago.

The woman stayed with the baby until paramedics arrived and took him away.

The child, who officials said was less than a week old, was taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital, where he was listed in good condition.

"It’s a good thing somebody came by. It’s hot out there, it could’ve ended differently, but it’s all seemingly worked out," Langford told the Chicago Tribune.

Reflecting on his parents' decision to leave him in an alley in the middle of August, the woman who rescued the baby boy said: "Every time I think about the little details, it just makes me mad. So I'm just gonna focus on the miracle that I was there, and that everybody showed up on time..."

Officials said trash pickup was underway on Tuesday in the area where the infant was found. But it wasn’t clear if the dresser was close enough to the curb that it would have been carried by trash collection crews.

The Chicago Police Department is investigating and is seeking to identify the baby.
