Watch This Heroic Toddler Rescue His Twin Brother From A Fallen Dresser

A brave two-year-old from Utah showed some serious initiative when his brother was trapped by a chest of drawers

Not all heroes wear a cape. Some wear a onesie. 

At least, that's what this superhero from Utah wore to save his brother from a dresser which toppled over and threatened to crush him. 

When Toddler Brock Shoff climbed on a chest of drawers in a room unattended by adults, every parent's worst nightmare came true. The two-year-old was trapped under the furniture and unable to escape. Luckily, he wasn't alone.

His twin brother Bowdy surveyed the scene and after careful consideration was able to perform a feat of Herculean strength and bravery—freeing his sibling without alerting his parents for assistance. 

The twins' father was quick to remind other moms and dads of the importance of bolting their children's dressers to the wall. 

Ricky Shoff wrote in a Facebook post:

"I've been a little hesitant to post this. But I feel it's not only to post awareness, but it is also incredible.We are so grateful for the bond that these brother's share. We know that Bowdy was not alone in moving the dresser off Brock. And feel blessed that he is ok. Please make sure all your dressers are bolted and secured to the wall. Please share."

Last year, a third child was killed when an IKEA Malm dresser toppled and fell. The death of Ted McGee from Minnesota in February prompted a recall of all chest of drawers that did not meet North American ASTM standards. 

Falling furniture is a huge hazard for children and parents are advised to safely secure all units. Anyone wishing to keep their chest of drawers, who has lost their tip-over restraint, can collect a free wall anchoring kit in-store, or receive one by visiting here.
