Parents Advocate Safety Measures With Viral Video of Child Scaling Pool Ladder

Here is a viral video that every parent or child caregiver needs to see.

A Massachusetts family wants to spread the word about pool safety after their toddler scaled a locked ladder.

He was able to get all the way to the top before his mom took him down.

The ladder was locked covering the steps, but little Cody was able to grab onto the slits in the door and pull himself up.

His parents say they couldn’t believe what they were seeing, and this isn’t the first time it’s happened.

They say they made this video to spread awareness.

According to the USA Swimming Foundation, between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2017, 163 children drowned in swimming pools.

The couple returned the ladder, but all the other designs were similar.

They are reaching out to the manufacturer to push for a design change.
