A Perth mother has shared a shocking video revealing how quickly and easily a toddler scales a backyard pool fence.

The footage posted to Facebook last week shows a little boy using a trampoline ladder in attempt to climb over an outdoor pool’s safety fence.

The boy, identified as three-year-old Jordan, can be seen removing the trampoline ladder and dragging it across the yard towards the pool fence, while a little girl watches on, reports Yahoo news.

Sharing the video last week, which has been viewed more than 13,000 times, Bronwyn Robertson wrote that the incident “ gave us a fright”.

The mother described her sons resourceful attempt as “something we didn’t see coming”.

“Please be aware of things lying around including the ladder off the trampoline,” she warned other parents.

  • So pleased you were watching.


  • You think you’re doing the right thing and alone comes a young child genius who can work out any solution. It’s so frightening to think what could have happened if Mum hadn’t been around.


  • Very scary- a warning to parents not to let their children play alone on the backyard if they have a pool.


  • At 3 I would squeeze through those pool fence gates.


  • Frightening how clever and scary this situation was.


  • Kids are clever and quick indeed. Always good to check our gardens for dangers.


  • Its scary how fast they are!


  • Kids are much stronger and much more resourceful than we give them credit for!


  • I would never think of a toddler doing this. It just proves how strong he is too. If he can manage to put the ladder against the pool fence it means he may be able to reach the locking mechanism on the top of the gate too.
