Creepy video of 'possessed' baby goes viral

A creepy video of a baby eerily balancing on the rail of his cot has gone viral, sparking viewers to question the authenticity of the footage.

A night vision ‘nanny cam’ recorded the toddler wailing in his bed as he stood up and began to climb up the side of his cot.

Baby Connor hauled himself on the railing and balanced perfectly still on the wooden ledge, where he stayed for 22 seconds.

While crying for his mother, Connor’s head moves side-to-side, his eyes gaining a spooky glow from the night vision camera.

The video, which echoes scenes from Paranormal Activity, was uploaded to YouTube several weeks ago and has since been viewed more than 2.6 million times.

"Caught on Nanny cam in the middle of the night... No children were harmed. This is not my child in the video,” the caption read.

Viewers were divided, with some “freaked out” and others assuming the footage was fake.

“This s**t looks like it belongs in Paranormal Activity man,” a man commented.

“That is so freaky,” another said.

“Too fake,” one viewer wrote.

“Can’t believe how many people here believe this video.”

Several people didn’t see anything creepy about the scene at all.

“All I see is a child crying out for his mom and being ignored,” one man wrote.

“Not possessed. Get a life,” another commented.
