    This newborn baby girl is in stable condition after she was found alone in the woods in Silver Spring.

    A man found a newborn baby in the woods in Maryland Friday evening.

    The man was walking in the 10000 block of Tenbrook Drive in Silver Spring about 5 p.m. when he heard crying, police said.

    He found the baby girl about 10 feet from the sidewalk and called 911.

    The baby was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition.

    She is possibly Hispanic, and according to the hospital, she was born a few hours before she was found, police said.
