The video was posted with the caption: “OMG! This toddler managed to climb out of this building window whilst the parents were taking a shower. This apparently happened over the weekend at a property in Playa Paraiso, Tenerife!.”
People were left shocked and criticized the parents for their negligence after watching the video.
One user said: ‘So both adults were taking a shower and no one was keeping an eye on the toddler!’ while another wrote: ‘If you were on holiday with little ones in an apartment would you not surely leave one parent watching whilst the other had a shower???’
The third one said: ‘We have all turned our backs for 2 mins sure. But in an apartment and you were taking a shower surely you would be extra secure with locks on doors and windows due to the obvious added danger.’
While one user defended the parents as the user wrote: ‘How does anybody know there were 2 parents there. I’m sure the parent/parents thought the window/door was closed. Whilst this could of been very tragic, let’s not judge unless we know the whole story and just be glad the little1 is ok’.
