A young woman in China recently got the absolute shock of her life when she gave birth on the toilet - because she had absolutely no idea that she was actually pregnant.
The new mother, who is in her twenties, said that she did not know she was expecting a child, and that she was “too afraid to approach” the newborn who was lying in the toilet bowl.
Local police were called to the scene when the baby was found in the porcelain toilet, and when they arrived the young woman was weak and not feeling well at all.
A police officer went straight to the bathroom and rescued the tiny tot from the toilet, and rushed both the baby and the mother to hospital.
The footage of the baby being rescued from the toilet was actually captured on camera, where the police officer, who was muttering "oh my god, oh my god" as he entered the room, can be seen bending over and picking up the tiny infant.
He picks up the tot using a towel, and carries her from the bathroom straight to the ambulance, where her mother was waiting for her.
Thankfully, following a number of tests in the hospital, the mother and baby were found to be healthy and happy.
We are so relieved that the newborn and mum are doing OK - what a dramatic welcome to the world for the precious bub.
