Please watch your kids around the pool so this doesn’t happen [watch]

A Massachusetts family captured a viral video of their toddler climbing what is supposed to be a gate to stop children from getting into a pool. Keith Wyman says his family was in their back yard in Attleboro on Monday when 2-year-old Cody began to climb the gate blocking the ladder to their above-ground pool. They grabbed Cody before he got into the pool, but not before capturing it on camera to show other parents how easily kids could climb over.

The video has since been viewed more than 20 million times. The Wymans say the store where they bought the ladder and gate offered them a replacement, but they all had a similar design. There are more than 3 million above-ground pools in the U.S. and drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children ages 1 to 4, according to the CDC.
