Shocking footage has been shared online showing a toddler clambering out of the fourth-floor window of a building, before running along a narrow ledge.
The brief clip, which was reportedly filmed in the Playa Paraíso area of Tenerife last weekend, has been shared widely on social media.
In the heart-stopping video, what appears to be a little girl can be seen hopping out of a window in an apartment complex. She then wanders across the ledge, running all the way up to the adjoining balcony before quickly turning back to the open window.
The vid then stops, but it appears as though the child tries to climb back inside the room.
Speaking to local media, one of the neighbours in the building said they were surprised that 'something worse has not happened,' while another said the toddler was 'luckily no wind was blowing' at time.
The video has since been widely posted across social media platforms, with people desperately concerned for the welfare of the child.
Sharing the video, radio DJ Jer Dixon wrote: "This is absolutely terrifying to watch. Apparently recorded in Tenerife... I always try to book ground floor rooms when on hols with the kids... you can see why."
Thousands of people have since commented on the post, with many stunned at how this could have happened.
One person said: "This is making me feel nauseous. The little skip/hop..."
A second wrote: "Oh God that was difficult to watch!"
A third commented: "That is one of the worst things i could see!!"
While another added: "I remember doing similar things as a kid. Now I understand why my folks would get so mad."
Retweeting his original post, Mr Dixon defended parents of the child after they were heavily criticised.
He added: "Lots of parent-shaming in the comments though. You only have to take your eyes off your child for a split second. We've all done it."
It is not known for certain exactly where the footage was recorded, however, LADbible understands that local police were made aware of it, but that no crime has been reported and the child is said to be fine.
