A 7 month-old baby from Brazil has miraculously survived after being thrown off a 118ft bridge by her own mom in north-east area of Brazil.
The victim identified as Baby Thallyer, was thrown over the railings of José Sarney Bridge, in Sao Luis, north east Brazil by her own mom, Carla Regina Mendes on Sunday afternoon in front of shocked bystander.
The baby had already sunk deep into the swampy river when two quick-thinking off-duty police officers got to her, just in time before she disappeared underneath the surface.
The baby suffered a blow to her head and bruising to her back after landing in a stagnant stretch on the Sao Francisco river.
Ms Mendes, 23, who was arrested at the scene, later told police to be suffering from mental health problems and depression.
She has been sent for psychiatric tests and could face charges of attempted murder depending on the outcome of the evaluations.
