Soldiers of the 3rd BCT, 4th ID based out of Fort Carson discovered an Iraqi baby boy abandoned at a entry checkpoint in Baghdad.

Army officials say the soldiers watched as a car pulled up to an entry control point at Forward Operating Base Callahan in northern Baghdad.

The woman reportedly stepped out of the car holding a bag. Once the woman dropped the bag near the gate, a search and investigation was conducted.

The search revealed a newborn baby wrapped tightly in several cloths. The Fort Carson soldiers retrieved the child and carefully brought him to the aid station to be examined.
