A shocking video showed a mother breastfeeding her baby after breaking her leg in a motorcycle crash (video below). (Warning: The photos and video below are graphic.)
In the clip, a motorcycle can be seen lodged underneath a car, with the woman on the ground next to it. The woman is holding her baby, breastfeeding the child, even though the mother’s leg is badly broken.
The mother’s ankle looks to be facing the wrong direction, and is covered in blood. Instead of focusing on her injury, the mother continues to feed her baby and make sure the child is OK.
The incident took place in Brazil, reports the Mirror.
Although the clip seemed odd, many applauded the mother for looking past her own injury to make sure her child was safe and taken care of.
“Given the circumstances, she was doing the one thing she knew would comfort her baby,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page. “In the middle of the wreckage, she probably was in partial shock, and maybe didn’t realize, or care what anyone else thought. At least they’re both alive.”
“This mother should be considerd as a hero under the circumstances and those people didnt have enough respect to assist her or try to at least offer that mother a blanket for privacy shame on them,” another wrote. “People shouldnt degrade her for feeding her child and giving the baby comfort during that time. That is a true loving and caring mother period my hats off to her and my prayers are for her and the baby as well as all the other victims in this wreck amen.”
“She was comforting her baby , I don’t see anything wrong with it,” commented another. “I would rather see a mother breast feeding than a woman in a string bikini with her boobs hanging out bouncing all over the place and a piece of dental floss up her a*s . Get a grip people.”
Some felt the woman shouldn’t have fed her child in public.
“Obviously she just wanted to be noticed, why not just cover lightly with a diaper or a clean wash cloth, I don’t mind woman breast feeding in public but have some respect,” one reader commented.
“Some of these stupid spectators could have helped give her some privacy instead of recording it on their cell phones,” added another. “Stop condemning people and actually do some good for a change. Don’t blame her for comforting her child. Look away if nothing else. Idiots.”
