A baby was found early Tuesday morning strapped to a car seat sitting in a driveway on Emery Street East in south London.

Anthony Franze says he found the baby in a neighbour's driveway as he was leaving for work around 5:40 a.m. after hearing a noise.

He initially thought it was a cat, but tells CTV News he then quickly realized it was a crying baby.

"Just beyond the car over here, near the sidewalk I found a baby in a car seat. [I was] in shock, unbelievable, you don't find this everyday. I could see there was frost on the baby seat, so it must have been out here for some time."

The infant was wearing a pyjama and had a blanket, but there was no protection on the boy's face or hands.

"The baby was crying, it was calling for help, you know you could see that," Franze says.

After looking to see if anyone was around, he quickly took the child inside and told his fiancee Debra Robarts to call 911.

Robarts says, "Tony had already started taking the baby out of the car seat and holding it, so I just pushed it against him, grabbed a blanket off the couch and wrapped it around the two of them...so it would keep the baby nice and warm."

She adds, "It's little hands were curled up and red and its face was all red, it was cold, just touching it was freezing cold...I don't know how on earth happens, but thank God that the baby's okay."

EMS and police arrived quickly and the eight-week-old baby was examined in hospital and cleared medically.

London police Const. Ken Steeves says, "The baby was taken to hospital by ambulance and found to be okay, he is now in the care of the Children's Aid Society."

According to London police both parents have since been identified and an investigation into the incident continues.

It remains unclear how long the baby was outside before being found, but CTV News has learned that sometime before the baby was found a woman in a car believed to be under the influence was taken into custody, however police have not confirmed those details.

No charges have yet been laid in the case.
