The Great Escape - Indiana Jones Style!

This is not a scene out of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'.

But this young toddler is just as brave as Indiana Jones... the fearless kid is young American boy, Dayn, and has become an overnight internet star.

It all started when his Mum was bewildered by how it was possible that he could escape from his cot - the simple solution she came up with, was to setup a video camera to film the action.

What she saw has left her and almost a million other YouTube viewers astounded. While Dayn's twin brother watches on, he simply swings his left leg over the edge of the railings... then he dangles for a moment before falling to the ground.

Although he lands quite heavily, Dayn shakes himself off, and waddles over to the not-so-hidden camera and grabs hold of it - presumably to destroy the evidence?

Clockwise from top left ... Dayn swings himself out of the cot, lands heavily on the floor, shakes himself off and heads over to the camera.

Watch the Video:

As regular readers of my blog already know, my youngest boy, Casey, has just started to walk... I'm hoping it'll be a while before he can pull off a daring escape like this one... in the meantime, we discovered how important Mickey Mouse is to him - check out how he goes from devestated to sedated in a matter of seconds - all thanks to Mickey - this video is titled "The Absence of Mickey Mouse":

At certain points of Casey's fake crying he really just sounds like he's laughing. Like he was trying to really bawl and halfway through realised it's funny that he's doing it.

Hi Kirsten - yes, agree... I think the ability to 'cry on demand' would be a great skill I'd like to learn from him ;)
