Alan Ragatz, whose family found the baby on its property, said it was an "act of God" that he and his daughters found the newborn.

“We went down, pulled it up. There was a poor little baby wrapped in a plastic bag, and we called 911,” Ragatz said. “She was alive. She was crying, so we figured that was a good sign. Could have been worse. The credit goes to my girls. They were the ones sticking with it.”
