Toddler dangles from high-rise balcony ledge in Brazil

A young boy has been filmed dangling from a fifth floor balcony in Brazil after apparently climbing onto a chair to get over the ledge and getting stuck.

The boy's mother was apparently asleep inside the apartment throughout the incident. The boy was rescued, unharmed, from the ledge.

A witness filmed the dramatic scenes in the coastal town of Vila Velha on Saturday.
