Bodycam captures moment Georgia deputies discover newborn wrapped in plastic grocery bag

Watch below - NOTE: some viewers may consider this footage graphic.
Neighbors heard a baby crying in the nearby woods and discovered "Baby India" on June 6th.
On Tuesday morning, the FCSO shared the body camera footage from that incident, in the hopes that someone who knows about this case can contact authorities.
The video shows the deputies carefully opening the plastic bag to find the umbilical cord still attached to the infant. The officers and first responders work quickly to get the crying baby wrapped in a jacket.
"Oh, look at how precious you are!" one of the deputies says at one point.
The FCSO says in a Tuesday Facebook post, "We are happy to report that Baby India is thriving and is in the care of the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services."
The post continues, "FCSO would also like to remind the public that the State of Georgia has a law called Safe Haven (HB 391). This law allows a child's mother to leave her baby, up to 30 days old, with an employee of any medical facility including any hospital, institutional infirmary, health center or birthing center in Georgia without prosecution. This includes Hospitals, Fire Stations and Police Stations.
