Twin brothers Bowdy and Brock, were playing innocently in their room when they decided to climb onto a chest of drawers.
However in one heart stopping moment, the unsecured piece of furniture topples forwards.
In footage posted online by the boys’ mother, Brock is seen trapped under the fallen drawers, before his brother lifts it enough for the two-year-old to wriggle free.
Parents Ricky and Kayali admitted they were hesitant to post the video on YouTube, however felt it was important to raise awareness about the dangers of unsecured furniture.
“Please make sure all your dressers are bolted and secured to the wall. Please share.”
The couple also wanted to highlight the bond shared between twins.
“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.”
The video has received mixed reviews from social media, with some users praising Bowdy’s courage, while others have criticised the couple.
"Wouldn't you think that you would have heard the dresser fall and go to investigate?" questioned one Facebook user.
The clip has been shared more than 2000 times and viewed more than a million times in two days.
