The woman managed to stand up a few seconds later, and is seen crawling to her feet on the CCTV footage.

She walks back towards the pram to check on her baby.

Luckily the child was reportedly unjured in the accident.

It is not known what injuries, if any, the woman suffered in the incident.

According to reports, the child was protected from harm by the frame of the pram.

The clip was uploaded online where social media users expressed their amazement at the woman's swift recovery.

'Aleva V.' said: "Knowing the weight of a window, I still don't get how she managed to get up..."

It is unclear what caused the window to fall on the woman and her baby's pram but viewers speculated it could have been the result of a shoddy fitting job by builders.

'Mikhail Moroz' said: "Yeah like everybody knows how to do it, so they all try make some money. They injure people with their so-called skills and take three times more than they should."
