An Amazon delivery driver has been hailed a hero after he rescued a baby who was abandoned by a car thief on the side of the road.
On Monday (January 25), Juan Carlos Flores was driving his delivery truck along his route in Houston, Texas, when he saw a car seat with a 5-month-old baby boy sitting inside. He quickly pulled over and approached the child, admitting that he 'wanted to cry' and he felt it was ‘impossible the baby can be here on the side of the street alone’.
Home surveillance video captured the moment a carjacking suspect left the infant on the street which was less than a mile from where the car was stolen.
The baby's mother was frantically calling the police to report the incident.
The baby was left on the side of the road for more than 20 minutes and the video shows six other vehicles driving by during that time.
Thanks to Flores, the baby was reunited with his mother and police are trying to identify the driver.
