Hero Toddler Saves Twin Bro From Fallen Dresser (Video)

A toddler saved his 2-year-old twin from under a fallen dresser and the heroic brotherly rescue was caught on a nanny-cam video.

A video camera in the bedroom of Brock and Bowdy Shoff in Orem, Utah, captured the frightening incident last week after the dresser fell on them as they tried to climb into its open drawers, reported NBC's "Today." (The full news video appears below.)

One of the twins, Brock, is seen trapped beneath the dresser until brother Bowdy pushes up on the dresser so Brock can wriggle out from underneath it.

Brock escaped without any serious injuries.

“Bowdy just came around and assessed the situation thinking, ‘I needed to help my twin brother. What do I do here?’” Kayli Shoff, their mom, told Salt Lake's KSL. “I really believe in a twin bond. You always hear that and I believe these two have it.”

Shoff was in another room at the time of the incident. It wasn’t until she went back to look at some of the previous footage from the video monitor when she saw that the dresser had fallen on the boys.

She decided to share the video online to encourage parents to anchor dressers to the wall.

“We just want to spread awareness to this one accident that happened and hope it doesn’t happen to any other families,” Shoff told KSL.

Some dressers come with kits that enable them to be anchored to the wall, and they can be purchased online or at a local hardware store.

This incident comes after Ikea issued a furniture safety warning following the deaths of two children from fallen dressers, reported ABC News.

“Consumers should immediately stop using all Ikea children’s chests and dressers taller than 23 ½ inches and adult chests and dressers taller than 29 ½ inches, unless they are securely anchored to the wall,” said Ikea.
