The moment a toddler gained superhuman strength to save his twin brother from being crushed by a chest of drawers.
The video starts by showing the boys pulling out the drawers and climbing on the unit before it topples over and one of the two-year-old children are see lying under the drawers, clearly trapped and crying in pain.
His brother wanders around the dresser, and appears to be figuring out a way to help his sibling.
He tries several times to lift the piece of furniture, before eventually leaning his whole weight against it.
The footage was posted online by the boys’ father Ricky Shoff, from Orem, Utah, on January 1.
On Facebook , Ricky wrote: “I’ve been a little hesitant to post this.
“But I feel it’s not only to bring awareness, but it is also incredible. We are so grateful for the bond that these twin brothers share.
“We know Bowdy was not alone in moving the dresser off Brock. And [we] feel blessed that he is OK.
“Please make sure all your dressers are bolted and secured to the wall.”
“It is not light. It does take me and my husband to move it,” the boys’ mother Kayli Shoff told MSNBC.
“They have that twin bond and that’s just what you do for your brother.”
Mrs Shoff was upstairs at the time of the accident and was unaware of the incident until she saw the chest of drawers face-down on the floor of the bedroom.
It was only when they reviewed the surveillance system when the parents realised what had happened.
“He could have been stuck under there for who knows how long,” she said.
Aside from a complaint about a sore head, Brocky was totally fine afterwards.
“I think they were more nervous about being in trouble.”
The accident happened on Sunday, but the Shoffs waited until yesterday to post the video on Facebook, as a warning of the dangers of unrestrained furniture.
The Shoffs have now clamped the chest of drawers to the wall and removed the handles to stop the twins attempting any more climbing.
WARNING – distressing video below.
One very lucky little boy!
