Removing a child deletes it's parent too, why can't I just delete a child?

Not sure why or how this happened but my footer got really huge and now if I try to delete it it deletes all the stuff above it.

It seems like your structure is messed up. The body element should always be the first element containing all the other elements.

Take a look at the explanation in the webflow university, it’s a great resource for problems like yours:

That’s why you should never delete the body element.
