IOWA CITY, Iowa The doctor who cared for a 6-day-old town of Beloit, Wisconsin, baby found outside in West Branch Friday morning is stunned, not only that Kayden Powell survived, but that he seems completely unharmed.

Kayden was discharged from the University of Iowa Children's Hospital just seven hours after he was admitted. His doctor said it's miraculous.

"I would expect to have found a dead baby, to be honest with you," Dr. Jeffrey Segar told WISN-TV.

Kayden was rushed to the emergency room, with word already spreading of his discovery after hours in the bitter cold. Segar said he expected hypothermia, frostbite, or worse, but he found none of it.

The newborn didn't need to be rewarmed. He was fed upon arrival and he fed very vigorously.

"He was hungry," Segar said.

    Segar said he finds Kayden's experience hard to believe.

    "The medical plausibility of that child being outside for over 24 hours in Iowa weather, and coming to the hospital with a normal body temperature is truly amazing," Segar said.

    "Even wrapped in a blanket inside a plastic tote?" WISN reporter Nick Bohr asked.

    "Like I said, I don't know the details, and that's an awfully good blanket," Segar said.

    Kayden's parents were escorted by the FBI while they were at the hospital. As they left, they asked for privacy.
