A 2-year-old boy was rescued from a fallen dresser by his twin brother in an incredible moment caught on a security camera.The boys, Bowdy and Brock Shoff, were playing on the dresser when it tipped over, pinning Brock underneath. The heart-stopping video shows Bowdy trying to push the heavy furniture from both sides, but it doesn’t move.
He tries to lift it, but that doesn’t work. Bowdy then tries to push the dresser again and manages to move it, freeing his brother.Both boys were uninjured.
The Orem, Utah, parents didn’t realize their son’s incredible feat until they reviewed the surveillance video.
The twins’ mother, Kayli Shoff, told ABC News that once she saw the video her “heart sank.”
She said Bowdy — outgoing and strong — was smart by assessing the situation in the moment.
“He said, ‘What do I need to do to save my brother? My brother’s in pain, he’s struggling. I’ve got to help him,'” she said. “He sat there for about 8 or 10 seconds and just looked at him, and went to try to lift it up. Wasn’t working that way, pushed with all of his might — and it was like butter, it was smooth, it just pushed right off of him.”
