A shocking video is making rounds on the web showing a Turkish woman gives birth while walking in the street. The video was taken by a street camera at night and it shows the women walking with two other people when something falls off of her! The craziest thing – watch the video.
The video clearly shows that the woman drops something while she was walking kind of awkward. The woman and the other 2 people walking with her briefly stopped to look at what was dropped. After a quick inspection, all three individuals then start walking away, leaving whatever that fell on the ground like nothing happened. The video was shot at night under street light conditions, but it does show movement by what the woman dropped and left behind.
According to DailyMail and other news sources, what dropped from the woman was her newborn baby girl! The other 2 people accompanying the young women were her parents. It happened in one of Istanbul’s working class neighborhoods called the Bağcılar. The district is said to be mostly home to struggling families and poor.
As for the baby, it was rescued within a few minutes by passersby who appeared in the video to have called the authorities. According to the news reports, the baby did survive the ordeal and she was named Ecem Ahu by the hospital staff.
Hurriyet Daily News reported that the teenage allegedly did tell the police that she had given birth to the baby while walking in the street. But the hospital staff claim that the still-attached umbilical cord attached to the baby was tied, and that is a sign suggesting that the baby was most likely born earlier.
The mother of the baby has reportedly said that ‘Something fell from me. I thought it was a blood clot. I didn’t know it was the baby.’
