COMPTON, CA (KABC/CNN) - Two women walking along a bike path helped find a baby girl buried alive near a riverbed Friday.

Around 4 p.m., Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies received a phone call from Evangelina McCrary and Angelica Blount about a baby crying.

Deputies searched the area after hearing the baby's muffled cries, finding the newborn girl buried under pieces of asphalt and rubble inside of a crevice along a bike path.

The deputies rescued the baby and wrapped her in a blanket because she was cold to the touch. The newborn was hospitalized in stable condition.

Authorities said they believe the baby was born inside a medical facility within the last 24 to 36 hours before she was buried, and said the person responsible for burying her is facing attempted murder and child endangerment charges.

Deputies said the newborn would not be alive if it weren't for the women who heard her cries.

"God bless the two ladies that found this baby," said Angel Flores, a neighbor. "God bless the baby, that strong baby."

Authorities are asking for the public's help in finding who left the child along that bike path.
