A home surveillance video shows Bowdy trying for almost two minutes to free his brother from under the furniture — eventually succeeding. The boys’ parents posted the video to social media to highlight the importance of securing furniture to make homes childproof, they said.

“We were hesitant to post this video initially,” Ricky Shoff, the boys’ father told CNN, “but a lot of parents have probably made the same mistake that we made, (they) don’t have their furniture secure of bolted to a wall.”

The accident happened around 8:30 a.m. on Friday, the Shoffs told CNN. “We didn’t hear anything, we normally hear them throwing their toys, they are super mischievous,” Shoff said.

It wasn’t until the boys’ mother Kayli woke up a short time later and checked a surveillance camera on the boys’ room from she saw the dresser was on the floor.

She went to check on the boys and “there wasn’t a scratch” on either of them, her husband told CNN, “It’s kind of a miracle, it’s something really special, to see how Bowdy helped Brock.”
