It was September 22, 1955. At the age of just 14, Dave Hickman was hunting in the woods in southern Indiana with his grandfather. He kept hearing a noise he couldn’t place: in his words, “a soft, cooing sound.” Determined to find the source of the sound, he started walking along the line of a fence.

Fifty-eight years later, he recalled to CBS News: “I got on top of the fence, and looked down, and there was a little baby. She was soaking wet, her lips were blue, she was just wrapped in a towel. My grandpa said: ‘We have to do something real quick.’” The pair called the authorities, and the infant was given immediate medical attention. She was named Roseann Wayne.
