The Internet Is Losing Its Mind Over 'Possessed' Baby Video
The internet is a weird and wonderful place. There are times when we can only applaud its mastery, and there are also occasions when we despair. The discussion surrounding the following video falls into the latter.
The footage was taken from a nanny cam, titled 'Possessed Baby Crib Surfing...No children were harmed. This is not my child in the video', and shared on YouTube by Chris and Keelan Chronicles.
It shows a baby crying in the middle of the night and attempting to climb out of the crib. But what seems like a fairly standard occurrence then becomes slightly peculiar when the child stands on the railing for a short time, before eventually falling back into the crib. You can watch the video below.
And it has incited a range of reactions. Some truly do believe that this is a Paranormal Activity-esque scenario, with the baby genuinely being possessed.

One person wrote, 'That child was being f**king held up ... I swear', another adding, 'OMG THAT'S WHAT I WAS THINKING!!!! And guys does anyone else notice his arm is not straight? It looks like a wave'. Numerous people continue to fuel the idea that this is the work of other-worldly powers.
However, others were less accepting of that explanation and, as you would expect, there was a lot of concern for the child, as well as anger directed towards the unseen parents. One user said, 'It's just a poor kid with great balance terrified of being left alone in the crib but I wonder what if he fell down to the wrong side, where are the parents?'
Another wrote,'Not possessed. Get a life', whilst another individual commented, 'Poor kid. He just wanted his parents, tried to get out of the crib and ended up balancing on it. You can tell he's scared because he can't get down and that's why he starts screaming and if you look closely the part where he is standing on is wide enough for a baby with good balance to stand on. I just can't understand how his parents didn hear him. He could've gotten seriously hurt.'
Luckily, the child did indeed fall back into the crib, but if we were the parents, we would seriously look into addressing this issue.
