An American father has shared CCTV footage of the moment his two-year-old son saved his twin brother, who had become trapped beneath a bedroom dresser.

Dad Ricky Shoff, from Utah in the US, shared the video which shows his son Bowdy struggling and distressed beneath the weight of the heavy set of drawers which had fallen on him, to warn other parents of the dangers posed by unsecured furniture.

Seeing his twin in danger, Brock managed to lift the dresser off his brother, allowing just enough space for the little boy to roll out from beneath it.

After the incident, the twins’ parents were horrified as they watched the footage taken on a security camera set up in the twins' bedroom.

The twins’ dad Ricky warned other parents to make sure all heavy dressers are secured to the wall, and says his little son was lucky to have come out unscathed.

Speaking to Independent.ie, Ricky said: "We are just extremely relieved that it didn't end any other way. They are both unscathed by the incident. We were hesitating to share this video but feel it's important that other parents make sure they don't make the same mistake.

"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.”
