IT IS cheeky child's play, but with potentially deadly consequences.
Gold Coast radio star Emily-Jade O'Keefe is warning other parents to keep an eagle eye on their children as the weather heats up, after catching her daughter Millie using a friend as a stepladder to try to scale their pool fence.
Millie, 5, and her friend Lucie Truet, 8, pulled the brazen stunt this week as a shocked O'Keefe and her husband Gerard Murtagh looked on at their Coast home.
"The kids wanted to go in the pool and I told them to go upstairs and get changed into their swimmers. The next minute, we saw them trying to get into the pool by themselves."
