It was a lucky chance that one-month-old Ava Wilmer wasn’t frozen by the wind or crushed by a car as she lay in her car seat on South Fulton Parkway Wednesday night, halfway on the shoulder and halfway in the road.
“It is a miracle that no one hit her,” said Thamara Booker, 41, who saw the car seat in the road, near I-285 around 5:30 p.m. as she was driving to work. Like the other drivers around her, she assumed the car seat was empty.
The infant and her 4-year-old sister Arya Davenport were in the back of an SUV that was stolen from a Quik Trip on Riverdale Road at around 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Shortly after the search for the children began Arya was discovered walking down a roadway near Riverdale Road by Georgia State University police Chief Joseph Spillane.
