A terrifying social experiment has highlighted how easy it is for strangers to abduct children.
In a video posted to Youtube yesterday, Joey Salads is filmed visiting a playground and asking parents if they thought their child would talk to a stranger.
All mothers were certain their children would not speak to him.
"My son will probably run back to me," said one mother.
With the permission of three mothers, Salads approached each child with the lure of a cute puppy.
"Hi, look at the puppy, do you like the puppy?"
"Come see my other puppies," he says, while leading each child away.
To the horror of the mothers, all three children happily walked off with the strange man.
