Carrying your week old baby in a bag.

The incident happened in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Thinking her behavior was a little strange, they began to watch her.

Before they realized that the cry was coming from inside her bag.

Fortunately, the passerby did something about it.
via: ShutterstockThey said "I approached her and asked if I could look in the bag. She said ‘no’ and hurried away. I reported the woman to the police.''
A video was then filmed by an onlooker, whereby the police arrive.

But those around the situation expressed their concern about the baby suffocating and overheating.

Officers reportedly put the child in their car and called for an ambulance, where he was taken to hospital for monitoring.
via: ShutterstockThe Mirror reported that the police officer at the incident, Maksim Kravchuk said: "We looked into the woman's bag and saw the newborn inside."
"We put the child into our car while we were waiting for an ambulance. The mother behaved aggressively toward us.''
via: ShutterstockThe mother is thought to have explained that the baby was in the bag as she didn't have a pram.
She had only recently moved from the city of Odessa, with her five other children in the hope of finding a job.
Police reportedly said that she faces a fine due to not fulfilling parental duties.
