(Scroll down for video) A woman claimed she was healing a baby by making him walk without clothes in the hot sun, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

People recorded the incident as the 2-month-old baby was forced to “walk” in an effort to cure his high fever.

The incident took place in Assam, India.

The healer was seen grabbing the baby by the neck and holding him upright above a blanket. She made him walk in front of dozens of people in Morigaon.

The boy’s parents brought the child to the woman in her 50s to heal their baby. She told them to strip the baby of his clothes and she performed the bizarre ritual to heal him.

The baby was crying and looked uncomfortable during the ordeal. Fortunately, the person who took the video handed the evidence over to police.

When police arrived, the baby was taken to a hospital, where he is recovering.

Two women and the female healer were arrested. State officials warned women to avoid self proclaimed healers.
