Toddler saves twin from falling dresser

Tragedy was narrowly missed as the two-year-olds played in their room.
Caught on camera: the terrifying moment when a tiny boy ponders how to save his twin brother from being crushed by a fallen chest of drawers.
The shocking footage comes just weeks after furniture megachain Ikea was ordered to pay $70 million in damages to the families of three toddlers who were killed by its Malm drawers falling on top of them.
The boys' father Ricky Shoff posted the heart-stopping video to his Facebook page in hopes it would encourage other parents to fix their furniture to the wall and avoid a similar accident.

"I've been a little hesitant to post this," Mr Shoff wrote. "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."
"Please make sure all your dressers are bolted and secured to the wall," Mr Shoff continued. "Please share."
