Shocking footage shows the moment a woman fell straight into an open manhole on the street while carrying her one-year-old daughter.

CCTV captured how she appeared to be talking on the phone in one hand with the infant in the other before the accident, perhaps too distracted to see the danger.

The hole was completely open, but had a stand placed in front of it to try and warn people away.

After seeing what happened, passersby in the Indian city of Faridabab rushed to help them out of the sewer on October 8.

The video has gone viral in India, with people sharing it in shock and to warn of the danger.
