This is the shocking moment a reckless father and a young child scaled a dangerous rock plinth as enormous waves crashed around them.<br />
<br />
The pair are thought to have gone for a walk during extreme storms and wandered 50ft from the main coastal path in Portland, Dorset.<br />
<br />
When they reached the Pulpit Rock - a huge stack of stones just off the Jurassic coast - they precariously leaned against it as massive waves splashed against the side.<br />
<br />
The man, thought to be in his 40s, was spotted desperately holding onto the child, who is believed to be his son and no older than 11.<br />
<br />
A passer-by stopped and photographed the scene in horror as the duo were soaked by the huge splashes that crashed over the rocks.
