WATCH: Toddler Climbs On Pool Ladder Safety Guard in Warning to Parents
Video of a toddler climbing over ladder safety guard into a pool has gone viral.
On Friday, Keith Wyman, of Attleboro, Massachusetts, filmed his two-year-old son Cody defying a safety guard to raise awareness surrounding pool safety for children.
In the caption for the video, Wyman said the ladder guard was both closed and locked, "Tonya and I stress you to watch your kids around pools I will be buying a new type of ladder," he said.
In addition to reminding parents to watch children near pools, Wyman also questions the design of the slotted ladder guard.
"Whose big idea was it to have this door put on a ladder with slots like that," he asks has his son climbs up the ladder.
Wyman's son was supervised through the entirety of the video and is removed by an adult before he could fall into the pool.
The video follows the recent drowning of Bode Miller's 18-month-old daughter last week.
