(Scroll down for video) A baby was found alive next to the bodies of his parents, who died during a car accident.

In a very sad incident, the couple was killed on their way to a hospital, but their baby somehow came out of the mother’s womb.

Zhau Wang, 40, was traveling to the hospital with her husband Mao, 42, of Fujian Province, China, when they were hit by a truck and both were thrown from the vehicle.

According to family members, the 40 year old, went into labor at 8:30 a.m., and her husband decided to take her to the hospital on his motorcycle instead of waiting for an ambulance.

Eyewitnesses told police that a truck hit the couple’s motorcycle and they fell off. The impact might have caused the baby to fall out of the mother’s womb.

The newborn baby was found a few feet away from his mother’s body. Both parents were declared dead at the scene.

The baby was transferred to the hospital. He has scratches on his face, but is otherwise doing well. The baby, who was named Xiao Zhao, weighed over 9 pounds at birth.
