Dangerous! Parents Spotted Taking Picture Of Their Kids At The Edge Of A Cliff

Published

on

Shocking pictures show a family taking photo close to the edge of a cliff have been recorded, worrying the people that see it. The dangerous moment happens at West Bay cliff in Dorset.

One of the pictures shows the two children standing on the edge of a West Bay cliff for a snapshot, with one even hanging their legs over the edge, while the parents stand to take the picture at a reasonable distance away.

The event prompted an alert from the coastguard of the area that no photograph is worth risking your life or loved ones’ lives.

“The Jurassic Coast is a beautiful place to come and visit and we understand the desire to want to capture that picture-perfect moment.

“We have seen many instances over the years of individuals and families putting themselves at needless risk trying to take that perfect photo, but these images represent one of the most severe examples.

“You have to ask the question: ‘What photograph is worth risking your life, or the lives of your loved ones?’

“Our advice remains very simple: stay well away from the edge of the cliff, keep your loved ones close and your dogs on a lead.

“Make sensible decisions and take home only happy memories.

“If you find yourself in difficulty or if you see something that gives you cause for concern then do not hesitate to dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard,” a spokesman for the West Bay Coastguard Rescue Team said.

In the past, there have been many instances of this as locals and tourists alike sought to catch the ideal image on the cliffs of themselves or friends and family.

Camera Club member Mazz Blehs, who captured the picture, said: “I was very shocked today.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this couple putting their children’s lives at risk for the sake of a photo.”

In the West Bay area, cliff falls have also occurred during the year, contributing to the risk of standing on the edge of the cliff.

In November, a huge part of the cliff has been reported to collapse, with tens of thousands of tonnes of rock and rubble thundering down to the beach below.

Published

on

Visiting someone who just gave birth to a baby would be such a normal tradition for many people in this whole wide world. Their intention might be to know how the mother’s condition is doing and also wanted to meet the adorable newborn.

Little that people know, there are certain important things that people should avoid doing when they are visiting houses that have babies.

The reason for avoiding these things would be to make sure that the newborn does not get any infections from other people that come to visit the family. A Twitter user named Ahmad Luqman Bukhari who is a Medical Doctor shared this important information on his Twitter page.

Five important things not to do when visiting a house that has a baby:

1) Do Not Touch The Baby Whenever You Feel Like To

Sometimes, people love to touch other people’s babies whenever they wanted and some of them even love to kiss the baby’s cheek because it is so adorable to them. This action is actually very bad to be done because newborn babies got a very low immune system to protect themselves. The life of the baby could be threatened if they got infected with the germs and also bacteria that exist on the surface of the people who touch the baby.

2) Do Not Wake The Baby Up If The Baby Is Still Sleeping

Some people love to intentionally wake a baby up even when the baby is still peacefully sleeping for many unnecessary reasons. It actually makes it bad to wake the baby up especially if the baby just started to sleep because it will disturb the baby’s amount of rest needed per day.

3) Do Not Have To Act Good By Teaching Various Tips To The Young Mothers

The thing that a young mother who is in confinement really needs is moral and also mental support from the people around her. If she asks, share the knowledge. But if not, do not have to teach the mother everything. Just say words of encouragement that make the mother feel comfortable.

4) Do Not Visit For A Very Long Time

Avoid spending a very long time at other people’s homes especially if they just gave birth. The mother who was in confinement, her body was still tired. She still needs a lot of rest and also sleeps. She might be having postpartum depression if she stressed out too much.

5) Do Not Be Near The Newborn If You Are A Smoker

Toxic things like nicotine and other chemicals from the smoke of the cigarette could make the baby’s breath becomes short if the baby inhaled it. It could also cause inflammation in the baby’s delicate airways.
