Horrifying video shows a young child walk around the outside of an apartment block in Tenerife after climbing out of a fifth floor window.
Footage of the toddler has gone viral, with viewers voicing their disbelief.
It seems as though the child escapes through an open window before walking around the side of the building to the balcony and then back again, the Manchester Evening News reports .
The nerve-wracking watch is made even worse when the child seems to trip and lose their footing close to the window.
It’s not known who filmed the video, but it’s been shared on the I Love Tenerife Facebook page, where the post – which has been shared more than 14,000 times.
A caption alongside the video says: “OMG! This toddler managed to climb out of this building window whilst the parents were taking a shower.
“This apparently happened over the weekend at a property in Playa Paraiso, Tenerife!.”
Thousands of people have commented on the post, with many criticising the parents for allowing it to happen.
One said: “If you were on holiday with little ones in an apartment would you not surely leave one parent watching whilst the other had a shower???”
While another added: “We have all turned our backs for 2 mins sure. But in an apartment and you were taking a shower surely you would be extra secure with locks on doors and windows due to the obvious added danger.”
But others said nobody knows the true circumstances of the incident.
One said: “How does anybody know there were 2 parents there. I’m sure the parent/parents thought the window/door was closed. Whilst this could of been very tragic, let’s not judge unless we know the whole story and just be glad the little one is OK.”
