Six hours later, footage showed three people looking through the dumpster before one of them found the infant inside. Incredibly, the newborn was alive and is now in a stable condition while being cared for in hospital.

The woman who found the child wrapped him and took care of him till police arrived.

Cops have charged 18-year-old Alexis Avila, 18, from Hobbs with attempted murder and felony child abuse for the abandonment. Officers say she has confessed. 

Joe Imbriale, owner of the Rig Outfitters and Home Store, said that police asked to view his security camera footage on Friday night.

“Something wasn’t right. I saw the officers’ faces and they did not look right. They really didn’t,” Imbriale told KOB.

“I said, ‘What is it we are looking for?’ and she goes, ‘We’re looking for somebody who dumped a black garbage bag in your dumpster.’ I turned around, I said, ‘Please don’t tell me it was a baby,’” Imbriale said.

“I was in shock just to see this,” he added. “I can’t sleep at night just knowing that this baby was just tossed in a dumpster like that. I’m sorry but who does that? That is evil. I don’t have words for it.”
