Bryant Collins was shocked when he saw a baby crawling near a highway in Madison County, Georgia.

“I had seen something out of the corner of my eye, and I thought it was a baby,” Collins told 11Alive. “I just stopped and, when I got out, there was a baby … almost in the highway.”

The 15-month-old baby had crawled through the woods, 300 yards from home, and nearly onto Highway 72.

Collins called 911, and waited for emergency crews, playing gospel music to quiet the child.

The child’s father, Timothy Pickens was arrested by police, the mother will likely be arrested as well.
