DELHI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Doyle Higgins tells FOX19 NOW he was on his way home from Kroger when it happened.

In the middle of the street along Fehr Road in Delhi Township was a young child sitting by herself in the middle of the busy road.

“I had to look at the baby three times because I could not believe what I was seeing,” said Higgins.

He has a digital recorder in his Jeep and recorded the encounter with the child.

In the video you see him pull a good ways back from the toddler. From the other side, you can see other cars stop in the road noticing the same thing.

Higgins begins the long walk and realizes that what he is seeing is real. A toddler he said not much older than one in the roadway by herself.

It happened last weekend around 3:50 p.m. Saturday. Higgins said at one point the child began to wave at him and started walking towards him.

“I’m screaming the whole time who’s baby is this?” He would get an answer as a woman appears in the video stating she is the mother.

Higgins hands over the child. He said the woman told him she thought the child was sleeping and didn’t realize her daughter got out of the house.

Police are investigating the incident and said once their investigation is complete they will hand it over to the prosecutor’s office where it will be decided if charges are warranted.

The 45-year-old said he is not a hero for saving the child from the busy road.

“I don’t consider myself a hero. The heroes are our veterans that go and fight for this county. Those are the heroes,” he said.
