Heroes come in all shapes and sizes – including extra small, as a two-year-old Utah boy discovered when his twin brother rescued him from a fallen dresser.
Toddler Brock Shoff was playing in his bedroom when a dresser tipped over onto him as his brother Bowdy – and the home’s surveillance cameras – looked on.
What followed was an impressive feat of cool-headed action – and impressive strength – from the pint-sized superhero.
But the incident highlights concerns over the safety of children and the dangers of tall furniture.
The video, posted on Facebook Sunday by the kids’ parents as a warning of the dangers of tipping dressers, starts with Brock already trapped and crying under the corner of the heavy dresser.
As the boy shifts around, the pressure on his ribcage is terrifyingly obvious.
And with mom Kayli upstairs for just a moment, there are no adults around to help.
But Bowdy doesn’t need adults. He calmly walks around the dresser, trying to figure out how to help his trapped twin, before coming up with a plan.
At first, he tries to lift it up with his bare hands – but it’s just too heavy.
Then he tries pushing it – and the item of furniture slowly but surely begins to move.
