WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS VIDEO WITH GRAPHIC CONTENT.

The graphic images aren't of boobs or whatnot (well, those are present, but they are feeding a baby, and barely visible anyway), but of a compound fracture, which, in case you don't know, is when a bone breaks and consequently pierces through flesh. It's not pretty. Be forewarned.

This footage on LiveLeak, thought to be from Brazil and posted by a user going by MrSmith305, shows a mother breastfeeding her baby while presumably waiting for emergency services to show up after an accident between a car and a motorcycle. Her leg is clearly broken, but she seems calm (possibly in shock) and she begins feeding her child while sitting in the sand, with another man (with his leg also broken) sitting behind her. A mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do: she's taking care of business.

The footage is captioned, "Respect to her for taking care of her baby." It's not clear if she and the man were in the car or on the motorbike, which ended up wedged under the front of the car.

At least no one seems offended by this mom breastfeeding in public. No one is asking her to cover up her breasts, or her leg, which is honestly a lot more disturbing than breastfeeding could ever be—because legs are not meant to look like this. People in other countries might not view public breastfeeding as taboo, the way some folks do in the U.S. But maybe that's the secret to getting people here in the U.S. to stop freaking out when moms breastfeed in public—just be horribly maimed while doing it!
