This is the moment a young mum abandons her naked newborn baby in a plastic bag behind the supermarket where she works after reportedly giving birth alone in a nearby bush.

The newborn was abandoned in the village Cheremshan in the south-western Russian republic of Tatarstan and was later found naked with signs of hypothermia by the supermarket manager, according to local media.

Reports said that the unnamed 36-year-old woman, who already has two school-age children, started her contractions while walking on the street.

The mother delivered the baby in a bush alone and cut the umbilical cord herself, according to local media.

The infant was then reportedly placed in a plastic bag and dumped behind the supermarket where the mother works as a cashier.

After the baby was discovered, the police and paramedics arrived on the scene and treated the newborn for signs of hypothermia, according to reports.

No external injuries were found and the baby was taken to a hospital in the city of Almetyevsk for further treatment.

According to local media, the 36-year-old woman has been placed under house arrest as the police investigation continues.

In the footage, the mother is seen leaving her baby in a bag behind the building before walking away.

Seemingly having second thoughts, the woman turns around and walks back to the bag where she lingers for a moment before finally leaving the scene.
