Ariel Williams told 6ABC that she spoke with one of the workers who found the child and said he was crying right in front of her car. She told reporters that the worker thought it was a dead animal and dropped the bag because it was heavy. After the man reportedly dropped the bag, “feet came out and he saw sneakers.”

“He was crying, he was right in front of my car. He thought it was like a dead animal, and he dropped it because it was heavy, and when he dropped it, he said feet came out and he saw sneakers,” said Ariel Williams of West Philadelphia.
