Shocking moment woman carrying a baby falls into an open manhole as she chats on her phone in India

  • A woman and her nine-month-old baby fell down a manhole in Faridabad, India
  • The mother was distracted on her phone and didn’t see the opening in the road  
  • A group of worried bystanders rushed to pull the pair up and no one was injured 










This is the moment a woman holding her nine-month-old baby plunged into an uncovered manhole while distracted by her mobile phone. 

Luckily no one was injured and both were quickly rescued by bystanders in the dramatic accident in Faridabad, India.

CCTV footage shows the woman walking towards the manhole in the middle of a road with her nine-month-old in one arm, and a phone in her hand.

The dangerous opening is partially obscured by a tall advertising sign standing in front of it.

The mother, not noticing the manhole, steps round the sign as she brings the phone up to her ear to talk to someone.

One foot slides into the hole and she plummets out of sight, clutching her baby as they fall.

The footage then shows bystanders rushing over, and a group quickly forms around the opening.

One man, identified only as Lakhwinder, can be seen descending into the manhole to get the mother and baby out, as another man holds his hand to help him.

More worried spectators gather as the baby is pulled out first.

A man takes the nine-month-old to the side and him and another woman check the child for injuries.

The mother is then lifted out and immediately rushes to check on her baby.

She can be seen hugging a woman in an emotional embrace as the child is handed back to her.
