In one of the most unbelievable videos online, a woman with a baby on her back was captured attempting to make her way across a dangerous river by walking across a narrow pipeline.
She can be seen quivering as she dangles perilously over the rushing waters while attempting to maintain her balance by holding onto strands of makeshift rope with one hand.
It is unknown where the video was taken but is likely an area in the Eastern Cape because of the language (IsiXhosa) that can be heard spoken.

Gayton McKenzie exposes poor conditions in 'best ran' Cape Town Metro
In related news, Briefly News previously reported that Gayton McKenzie opened a can of worms amid local government electioneering, which has taken off in earnest as South Africa's political parties look to attract voters.
The former convicted criminal turned political leader has taken to giving South Africans a glimpse into the shocking living conditions black people are exposed to in the country's so-called "best ran municipality", the Cape Town Metro.
Turning to his @GaytonMcK Twitter account, he wrote:
"This is how black people live in the supposed best ran municipality called Cape Town Metro. These pictures were taken yesterday."
The images shared by the motivational speaker appear to show shacks partly submerged in a river of water, supposedly after heavy rains or flooding in the area.
