ST. LOUIS (AP) — Remembering a forecast of rain, Wesley Falker decided to dump his grass clippings in a yard waste bin rather than leave them until morning.
Falker now thinks a higher power was making sure he heard the whimper of a newborn boy abandoned in the bin in a back alley.
"You just never know hour to hour, second to second, what's going to happen in this strange, crazy world we live in," Falker told The Associated Press on Tuesday, still numb from his unlikely discovery the night before.
"I feel blessed to have been out there at the right time, the appointed time," he said. "God does all this stuff. You do what you're supposed to do."
