A mother checked herself into a hospital in China, claiming that she is in labor.
However, when doctors checked her, they saw no baby.
It turns out that the woman identified as Qi of Zhanjiang, unknowingly gave birth while riding a motorcycle, and she left the baby on the road as she and her husband were on their way to the hospital.
The baby was found two miles from the hospital and surrounded by three men who made sure to keep the child out of harm’s way.
The incident unfolded after Qi and her husband Li arrived at the Chenguang Nongchang Hospital, where they told medical staff that she was in labor.
Doctors quickly realized that blood was dripping down her legs. They also saw a broken umbilical cord and placenta, but no baby.
Li and doctors rushed to retrace their way to the hospital, and they found the baby on the road. Apart from some minor bruises, the baby was unharmed.
The baby was taken to the hospital, and is in stable condition.
