Online video footage has emerged of a tiny child pacing on the outside window ledge of a multi-storey building in India, according to news.com.au.

The child is seen edging his way around the ledge, many floors above ground, and even dangles his feet over the edge before slipping back inside the building. No parents are visible in the footage, and the origins of the clip are unclear.

Children and heights

Most children exercise an innate caution around heights, although babies may not realise just how much danger they are in around unsecured windows and other heights. Being top-heavy, should they explore these heights, they can easily lose their balance and topple over.

Always ensure that furniture is kept away from windows which are not secure so that a baby will not be able to climb up and risk falling.

Has your explorative child ever been in danger?
