A newborn baby was rescued from within a burning dumpster in northern California Tuesday, where temperatures exceeded 100 degrees, according to reports.
The authorities said the boy was found in a plastic bag shortly before noon in Stockton, located about 50 miles south of Sacramento.
A dwelling apartment heard crying and announced the boss who jumped in the dump to save the boy and call the police, Sacramento Bee reported. The boy was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition, police said.
