If you’re a parent, you have probably read about how important it is to mount your furniture to prevent harmful and even deadly accidents. But, maybe you just haven’t gotten around to it? Well, if that’s the case, then this video will definitely give you the push you need to mount that dresser ASAP.
Warning: This footage is disturbing.
This shocking video above was shared to YouTube by mom Kayli Shoff, who caught the footage on a “nanny cam.” In the couple minutes shown above, a pair of two-year-old twins, Bowdy and Brock, are playing around with a dresser, causing it to fall over onto Brock. Fortunately, with the help of his brother, Brock was able to escape.
“We didn’t hear a cry. We didn’t hear a big thud, so we just woke up, looked at the camera… then we saw that it was all the way down. They were just still playing, so we didn’t know if it had landed on them,” Shoff told Utah’s 14 News.
While Shoff admittedly debated on sharing this video, she ultimately decided that she was responsible to help raise awareness about this dire situation.
“Everybody needs to bolt down their dressers to the wall. I mean, we just didn’t think about it,” Shoff explained. “So, accidents are gonna happen, so, we just want to spread awareness to this one accident that happened and hope that it doesn’t happen to any other families.”
