There are no parents anywhere to be seen in the clip, which has caused controversy online.

The shocking footage was shot in Miass in the Chelyabinsk Region in the Russian Urals, and has been viewed 41,000 times.

Neighbours who filmed the footage on their phones called the police. It has been reported that the child was unhurt, and that by the time the police got there, he had bored of his adventure and had left the ledge on his own.
