Byron Nash parked his truck near Lake Charles, Louisiana to deliver a parcel to a property when he saw the child crawling underneath his vehicle
A FedEx delivery driver was shocked when he found an unsupervised baby under his truck. Byron Nash parked his truck near Lake Charles, Louisiana on Friday to deliver a parcel to a property when he saw the child crawling underneath his vehicle. He recorded the incident on his phone, Daily Mail reports.
He later posted the footage on Facebook and said: "This baby was crawling outside under my truck after my truck was parked to make a delivery, luckily I seen her before I backed out. No supervision in sight."
In the footage, the baby looks up at Byron as she is dwarfed by a wheel of the truck. He continues: "This baby is right under my truck and her parents aren't nowhere to be found! Look at this, this baby is outside by herself."
He then proceeds to deliver the parcel along with the child to a woman, who had no idea the little toddler had crawled out of the house. Byron shouts through an open door in the garage of the property: "Hello! Hey! This baby was under my truck!" To which the woman responds: "Oh s***."
"Oh my God!" she exclaims. Byron says: "I saw her crawling under my tire." He tells her that at first he thought it was a dog, but then realized it was a little child. The woman says: "I thought I had her trapped." Byron says the encounter "scared him at first", to which the woman agrees and says: "It would have scared the f*** out of me too, I would have been tripping." He then responds: "Thank God I was paying attention because if I had backed up she would have been out of here."
Byron advises the woman at the end of the video to keep her doors closed. However, the woman responds by saying the house belongs to her mother who likes to keep "everything open, all the doors, all the windows."
Speaking to Daily Mail, Byron, who has a young son of his own, said: "I thought how could somebody leave their child unattended like this?"
His post went viral on Facebook and garnered over 4 million views and over 82,000 shares. Many users on social media slammed the woman for her "bad parenting".
Lisa Smith said: "That baby life was in all sort of danger, kidnap, run over, animal attack, you name it, that baby isn't even a year old, & this woman didn't realize the baby is not in sight or is too quiet." While Arlene Ruffo-Rocco said: "That is so scary! Thank God you saw her. That would have been absolutely awful. God bless you."
