"Un-mounted" swimming pool ladder in a viral video


A Massachusetts family captured a viral video of their toddler climbing what is supposed to be a door that prevents children from entering a pool.

Keith Wyman says his family was in their backyard in Attleboro on Monday when his two-year-old son, Cody, began climbing the gate that blocked the ladder leading to the above-ground pool.

The Wymans caught Cody before he entered the pool, but not before capturing him in front of the camera to show other parents how easy children could climb.

The video has since been viewed more than 16 million times on Facebook.

The Wymans say that the store where they bought the scale and the door offered them a replacement, but all the other doors had a similar design.
