Preikestolen, also known as Pulpit Rock, is one of the most popular destinations in southern Norway: The cliff rises about 2,000 feet above a long and narrow fjord.

Hiker Fred Sirevåg was taking in the view when he saw parents let their baby get so close to the edge it made him nervous.

“They let the baby crawl near the edge and they even walked back a few steps so that they could take pictures of the baby with Preikestolen in the background,” he told The Local Norway.

“I think it was very creepy. The baby could have fallen in any direction. I think it was very irresponsible.”

Although the sight of the baby at the edge shocked Sirevåg, many tourists go right up to the edge.

Preben Falck, the general manager of the Stavanger Tourist Association in Norway, said visitors to Preikestolen should be careful.

“I have taken my children to Preikestolen and kept them at a safe distance away from the edge,” he said. “All parents are different, but I wouldn’t look after my children like that.”

There are no fences around the area; Falck said they would “spoil the experience.”

Sirevag told MailOnline that he was going to go warn the parents, but that they left soon after he took the photo.

Tens of thousands of people visit the rock each year, mostly without incident.
