A newborn in Harbin was thrown out a second-floor apartment window on Thursday and run over by an SUV. There’s, um, video of that happening, above.
The mother – an 18-year-old hair salon worker surnamed Zhang – gave birth on Tuesday in the bathroom of a second-floor apartment she shared with nearly 10 people, the official provincial Shenghuo Newspaper said.
In her weakened state she walked upstairs to a window between the second and third floors, and tossed out her daughter.
It was not clear whether the baby was killed hitting the ground, or by the impact of the car.
She was no longer breathing by the time a security guard noticed the bloodstained bag and called police.
The mother is being held for homicide.
