Massachusetts - Family Returns Pool Safety Ladder As 2 Year Old Climbs It (Video)

Mr. Keith Wyman’s video of his own two-year-old climbing the pool security ladder which he had bought to ensure the safety of his children shows two things: firstly, the manufacturer should have tested this better and secondly, that kid has some serious upper body strength.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#PoolSafety</a> This video shot by Keith Wyman shows how easy it easy for a child to get away and into a pool. The two-year-old is able to climb up a pool ladder that is locked. This is something every parent needs to see. <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Fox26 News (@KMPHFOX26) <a href="">June 19, 2018</a></blockquote>

As the family was sitting in their backyard in Attleboro this Monday, 2-year-old toddler Cody all of a sudden started taking an interest in the gate blocking the ladder to their above-ground pool. Mr. Wyman luckily filmed his child as he didn’t believe that he would be able to do it, but lo and behold, after just 30 seconds young Cody had managed to get upstairs. Luckily for him, his parents were around.

As a warning to other parents, Mr. Wyman stated on Facebook: “So I’m posting this video after I found my 2-year-old Cody trying to climb our pool ladder when it was closed and locked I just got it with the new pool Tonya and I stress you to watch your kids around pools I will be buying a new type of ladder!!“

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Keith Wyman said he and his family were in the backyard when he saw his two-year-old son, Cody, begin to climb the gate, which is supposed to prevent children from using the ladder.<a href=""></a></p>&mdash; NewsChannel 12 (@wcti12) <a href="">June 19, 2018</a></blockquote>

“Whose big idea was it to put up a ladder with slots like that?”

The Wyman family claims that the store where they bought the ladder and gate to secure their pool offered them a replacement after they showed the video, but all the other gates had a similar design. It would thus appear there is an opportunity for US manufacturers to come up with a better design, as well as a warning for existing pool owners to make sure kids cannot crawl upon these ladders.

The video has by now been viewed more than 16 million times, showing the importance of the topic.
