The hilarious moment a 5ft grandma experienced a daily struggle faced by many short parents was caught on camera.
The woman’s daughter, Nikki Sharp Bishop from Alabama, US, captured her mother toppling into the baby’s cot, on a surveillance camera in the room – and thought it was brilliant.
“My mum is going to kill me but I had to post,” she wrote when sharing the video on Facebook on Tuesday 15 November.
“For those of you who don’t know my mum, she is 5ft and has always been vertically challenged. I love this crazy woman.”
The footage shows Bishop’s grandmother clutching the baby while she stepped onto a footstool so she could reach down into the crib.
However when she leaned over to place the sleeping baby on the mattress, she toppled in, too.
It seems Bishop wasn’t the only one who found her mum’s topple hilarious. The clip has been viewed nearly 35 million times on Facebook in just two days.
“This video sums up short people challenges, absolutely love it,” one person commented.
