The incident took place in a wet market in Le’an, Jiangxi, where a pregnant woman was seen pulling her pants down and letting her baby fall to the pavement.

Loud screams could be heard in the video as some elderly women presumably offered words of help to the pregnant woman who suddenly went into labor on the street. Some were also urging her to pull down her pants faster.

Shortly after, a loud cry came from the newborn who rapidly slipped out and fell to the ground.

The woman was then seen squatting with the umbilical cord still attached to the baby who was squirming around in a pool of blood and amniotic fluid.

The onlookers were heard shouting, “hurry, hurry, the baby’s gonna die! The cord’s strangling the neck!” However, all seemed reluctant to lend a hand.

Only 30 seconds later, a kind soul placed a rice sack for the woman to sit on.
