A video that appears to show a newborn baby “walking” moments after its birth is currently breaking the Internet. Since being posted on Facebook on May 26, the 41-second clip has been viewed well over 68 million times. It has been shared over 1.5 million times and has collected over 325,000 (mostly incredulous) reactions. The footage shows a newborn, being supported by a nurse, lifting one foot, and then the other, in movements that mimic walking.
The video was posted on Facebook by Arlete Arantes from Brazil. It’s unclear when the video was recorded.
