WATCH: The incredible moment a two-year-old saves his brother from underneath fallen dresser


Alan Loughnane


A two-year-old is gaining a lot of attention and praise on social media after he saved his twin brother from the weight of a fallen dresser.

Bowdy and Brock Shoff, from Orem, Utah were playing in their room when they climbed on the dresser, which fell forwards and trapped Brock underneath.

The moment was captured on a camera in their room as two-year-old Bowdy somehow found the strength to push the heavy dresser off his twin brother.

Their father, Ricky, posted the video to social media with the following warning for other parents:

“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 of Brock. And feel blessed that he is ok. Please make sure all your dressers are bolted and secured to the wall. Please share.”

Ricky and Kayli Shoff didn’t hear the commotion and only saw the incident when they were reviewing the footage after they saw the overturned dresser.
