MINNEAPOLIS (AP) --  Emergency responders in Minneapolis have rescued a hypothermic baby they found abandoned in a stolen car.

Police were dispatched to a residential area in south Minneapolis at about 8:10
a.m. on Tuesday. There they found the stolen car.

A baby boy was in the car alone. He was not in a car seat and was not dressed for
the cold, according to police.

Emergency responders took the crying baby to the Hennepin County Medical Center
to be treated for hypothermia. Police said his condition was not life-threatening.

The car was stolen on Monday in Alexandria, about 130 miles northwest of the Twin Cities, while the keys were inside, according to police.

A 60-year-old woman who lives just outside of Alexandria in the town of Nelson owns the car.

Police said investigators know the baby and mother's identities but haven't said how the baby ended up in the car.
