An Amazon delivery driver has found a baby abandoned on the side of the road after a suspected car jacking.

On Monday (local time), police responded to reports of a stolen car and kidnapping in Houston, Texas.

Not long after, surveillance footage captured a man abandon a baby inside its carrier on the side of a nearby road.

Fortunately, Amazon delivery driver Juan Carlos Flores spotted the infant, local news station ABC13 reported.

“When I saw that baby, I wanted to cry," Mr Flores said.

“How could someone have a heart to leave the child on the side of the road?”

The delivery driver went to a nearby house and the homeowner called the police.

Mr Flores continued with his delivery rounds and ran into officers searching the surrounding area.

He asked if they were looking for a child and took them to the home where he had left the baby.

Just minutes later, the baby was reunited with its mum.

Police believe the man who left the baby on the side of the road is also suspected of the car jacking, according to ABC13.
