A homeless man in Louisiana, US has rescued a five-month-old baby who was kidnapped by his uncle and left under a busy highway's bridge.
25-year-old Kyshaun Wilson allegedly stole little Elijah from his home on Monday morning, August 21 while his mother was preparing his milk bottle.
Wilson then walked down a busy highway and left his little nephew under the bridge, before hitching a lift to a different location.
He then told a homeless man, Demarco Lewis, what he had done. Lewis immediately called the cops, who found and rescued the baby.
The police also questioned Wilson, who eventually confessed despite initially denying everything. They arrested him.
Little Elijah was unhurt and has been reunited with his mother. In an interview, Lewis said he just happy to help: "I'm just glad I was there that morning as a vessel to make sure things panned out."
Questioned why he did it, Wilson said God had told him to. He is now facing charges of aggravated kidnapping.
