(Scroll down for video) A pregnant woman who was waiting to get groceries at a supermarket, suddenly went into labor and gave birth on the street, according to a video that was uploaded on the Internet.

The incident unfolded earlier this week in Coro, Venezuela.

Activist Vanessa Flores took a photo of the woman giving birth outside the Lhau Hypermarket, and uploaded it to Twitter, where it went viral.

On Friday, the pregnant woman, who was not identified, gave birth while waiting in a long line to get essential groceries for her family.

All the people who waited in the line, cheered on the woman as she was on the ground in labor. A video of the birth was posted on social networks.

The video shows how people celebrated the birth of the child and the care provided by the Civil Protection Officers to both the mother and the child.

The video ended with the mother and child being taken away by ambulance.

The hunger and shortages of food in the country, forces women of all ages to spend many hours queuing to purchase products from the basic food basket.
