Beijing woman fakes baby bump for seat on train


The woman has been branded a "disgrace" and "shameless" after she was caught in the act when the bump fell out.

The woman, named by local media as Zhang, told the Liyuan Industrial and Commercial Bureau the belt holding the silicon bump to her waist had come loose, leaving her "found out" and "mocked."

She is just one example of a growing trend in Chinese women who pretend to be pregnant.
