A toddler in Canada appears to have had a lucky escape after almost ending up on an eagle's dinner plate.

In a video posted to YouTube, an eagle appears to swoop down on child playing in a Montreal park before attempting to carry him off by his hood.

But it seems the youngster proved a tad too heavy for the bird, who is seen to drop him back down after a few seconds.

The video is yet to be verified, and some viewers have already expressed doubts online about its authenticity.
