Two-year-old twins Brock and Bowdy Shoff were playing at their home in Orem, Utah, when a dresser fell on Brock. A home surveillance video shows Bowdy trying to free his brother from under the furniture until he succeeds in the heroic task.
“We were hesitant to post this video initially,” Ricky Shoff, their father, told CNN. “But a lot of parents have probably made the same mistake that we made: They don’t have their furniture secure or bolted to a wall.”
“Our house is very childproof. We are really cautious about all this stuff, so it never really crossed our minds that something like this could happen,” he added.
It wasn’t until the mother, Kayli, woke up and checked the camera that she saw the dresser on the floor. She went to check her children immediately. “There wasn’t a scratch on either of them. It’s kind of a miracle. It’s something really special, to see how Bowdy helped Brock,” the man said.
