Baby in stolen car found shivering in park 20 miles away


HOUSTON (CNN) — A couple walked into a gas station in Houston and it turned into a nightmare situation.

Deputies say around midnight, 21-year-old Kimberly Cook and her boyfriend 29-year-old Anthony Blue left their 16-month-old asleep in a running, unlocked car in the parking lot. When they came back out, the car and the baby inside were gone. 

20 miles away, a ranger was closing up a park, when he spotted what he thought was an animal, but it was the infant, shivering in its onesie. The child was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Not long after, deputies spotted the vehicle. And after a short chase, they arrested two suspects for kidnapping and auto theft.

Cook and Blue have been charged with child endangerment.
