A newborn baby has been spotted walking moments after being born.

A video has captured a tiny tot being held upright by a midwife while it clasps her wrist and puts its feet along the counter in an attempt to stand on its own and waddle along.

The footage, which has been obtained by The Sun Online, has gone viral and has been viewed more than 50 million times.

A woman can be heard shouting in Portuguese, which has been translated to mean "Oh my gosh, the girl is walking".

In the clip the baby continues to put one foot in front of the other before falling down.

The infant is placed back down and she attempts to climb back to her feet and walk again, although children are usually 10 months old when they start walking on their own.

The midwife told the publication: "I was trying to wash her here and she kept getting up to walk."

A survey has found over 50 per cent of Britain choose a novel based entirely on its cover.

First impressions have been proven to count as a new study has revealed 52 per cent of British people judge a book by its cover design with the majority opting for a text with dark and mysterious sleeve, while one third of people pick a novel based on its title and merely 19 per cent are drawn in by the author.

The poll, which has been commissioned to mark the paperback launch of 'The Obsession' by best-selling author Nora Roberts, has revealed animals and men on the cover were deemed the least attractive text, while scenic artistry are more attractive.

Despite personal recommendations (36 per cent), immersive plots (44 per cent) and surprising twists (29 per cent) being most likely to appeal to readers' interests, only four per cent of those surveyed said they would be willing to wait until the final page before casting judgement, but more than half of bookworms would stop reading if they were bored by the first chapter.

'The Obsession', featuring number one best-selling author Nora Roberts' unique combination of suspense and passion, is now available at all good book stores nationwide.

A man has dragged a helicopter across the ground using just the strength his penis.

Kung Fu master Ye Hongwei who is known by the stage name 'Ye Wei' has set a new world record after using his manhood to pull the aircraft, according to reports by The Mirror newspaper.

Mr. Hongwei, who lives in the city of Zibo, in East China's Shandong Province, was watched by hundreds of onlookers and official adjudicators as he pulled the helicopter.

Speaking after the feat, Ye Wei said: "I don't know why I struggled in the beginning. I felt a bit nervous and unsure. But I mustered up the energy needed and started the helicopter moving. I will continue practicing so I can break new records in the future."

Footage shows the man struggle but once the 10 m (32 ft 9 ins) long engine is moving, it gathers pace outside the hanger.

The previous record was 8 m (26 ft 3 ins) but he won and was presented with a certificate from the World Record Academy.

It's not the first time Mr. Hongwei has used his penis to pull something as he previously towed seven Audis weighing 12.6 tonnes using his manhood.

A study has shown 50 per cent of UK adults snack in secret while at work.

According to new research carried out by IronmongeryDirect, 47 per cent of Britons hide their workplace eating habits from their partners, while one fifth of those have admitted lying to their partner about their meal choices in the office.

The treat that was the most popular feast to indulge in was a bacon sandwich, which was popular with 49 per cent of those who took part in the survey, while biscuits were ranked the second most popular workplace snack, followed by crisps, sweets and pastries.

The research into office eating habits comes after recent comments by the Faculty of Dental Surgery who claimed "workplace cake culture" was the cause of growing health problems.

And the worst workplace culprits for secret snacking were those with "demanding" careers.

Wayne Lysaght-Mason, managing director of IronmongeryDirect, said: "Those with demanding jobs are more likely to snack or eat on the go to keep their energy levels high for the physically demanding tasks."
