A video showing a toddler screaming while balancing on the railing of a crib has gone viral on YouTube. The video was first posted on March 9th, and has been viewed more than two million times.

In the video, the screaming and crying child can be seen on “nanny cam” climbing the side of his crib, from there he precariously stands up and balances on the rail.

According to KSTU, between his incredible balance and glowing eyes, some commentators online say the toddler is possessed — but his parents insist the footage is real and nothing strange is afoot.

Here’s the description of the video:

“Caught on Nanny cam in the middle of the night… No children were harmed. This is not my child in the video.”

According to a video interview posted by AOL, the toddler’s parents say the glowing eyes are simply due to the camera’s night vision. They say the video is “100% real.”

    This is 100% fake just people trying to be cool on youtube cause if that is real why didn’t the parents come in to check on him

  • Bobbie

    How horribly sad and frightening for this child, he was clearly pleading for his mommy to come and why didn’t she! Selfish parents for not going to him when he needed them!!!

      Poor baby. He probably stands on the cribrail like this only briefly, as he steps into his mama’s arms. Nobody comes, so what now? No place to go but down. He sounds terrified, maybe had a nightmare, breaks my heart. Giving compassion and comfort encourages kids to grow to be compassionate and comforting toward others. If you aren’t willing to help these little guys 24/7 then don’t have them. (I have no idea what the case was here, I don’t judge these parents.) Just saying, this is a prime example of why you get up and go check on them when they cry.
