Driver finds baby crawling across Lakewood street

Cory Cannon spotted the girl making her way across Joe Parker Road around 5 p.m. while on his way to work, according to a post he shared on Facebook that quickly received thousands of shares and comments.

The Eatontown resident got out of his work vehicle to stop traffic and watched a neighbor return the baby to her home, according to He told the website he first thought he saw a toy in the road until he realized the girl was moving. 

Cannon then notified police, providing them with the baby’s apparent address. It’s unclear if anyone has been charged.

Neither Cannon nor Lakewood police could immediately be reached for additional information early Monday.
