Footage Of A Baby Balancing On The Rail Of His Crib Has People Freaked Out; His Parents Claim The Footage Is Real

In early 2016, a video surfaced online which appeared to show a baby standing on the rail of his crib while crying out to his mother. In the footage, as captured in the middle of the night by a nanny camera, the baby, Conner, can be seen standing up in his crib and then climbing onto the rail — it is then that he seemingly balances himself in precarious fashion before falling back down after several seconds.

Needless to say, the footage has gone viral, with many people finding the baby’s behaviour utterly spooky and others claiming that the video has clearly been manipulated using special effects.
