Young mum Zeng Ling, 24, had to be given tranquillisers to separate her from her dead child after her baby fell off her scooter and was killed.
The tragic accident happened in the city of Changsha in south China's Hunan province when the woman put her one-year-old daughter on the back of her electric bike to go shopping.
As they were travelling along a busy road, the bike collided with a bus, sending the mother and baby sprawling across the street and killing the child instantly.
Despite being injured herself Zeng managed to crawl over to her baby's lifeless body, which she cradled in her arms and refused to let go even when medics were called. Shocked bus passengers including the driver had tried to help the badly injured woman but were unable to separate her from her baby and in the end she remained there for more than an hour before medics were able to sedate her and take her to hospital, still clutching the baby.
Doctors were finally able to persuade the woman to release the child and then they also confirmed that the baby girl had probably died immediately at the scene.
Police said that an enquiry was underway to work out who was to blame for the crash.
