Hero Cop Saves Dumpster Baby, They Finally Meet 25 Years Later

One November morning, Michael Buelna, a police officer based in Santa Ana, California, found something that would change anyone’s life forever.

He was out working on a criminal case as he was walking through a secluded area and heard a baby’s cries. He moved to investigate and determined that the cries came from a nearby dumpster.

Hidden behind the dumpster was a newborn child. Michael rescued that child and 25 years later, their paths crossed again in very different circumstances. Here’s the whole story of the baby and the policeman who saved his life one November morning.

 

12. The Call

That November night was bitterly cold, and Michael Beulna had pulled a hard shift. He was sent out to investigate a stabbing that had occurred in the neighborhood a few days prior. He was flagged down by some concerned residents who’d heard a baby’s cries in the street.
