"Superhuman" toddler rescues trapped twin brother

A FATHER has shared the moment his two-year-old son may have saved the life of his twin brother after he was crushed by a falling set of drawers.

In the video, posted to YouTube by shocked Utah father Ricky Shoff, the twins can be seen climbing on a set of drawers in a play room.



As they attempt to hop into the open drawer, it leans forward and crashes down on two-year-old Brock as brother Bowdy is thrown clear.

At first unsure of what to do, Bowdy soon flies into action, shifting the enormous weight of the drawers off his brother.

Mr Shoff wrote on Facebook he was "hesitant" to put the video online, but ultimately felt the situation needed attention "to bring awareness".

It was also "incredible", he said.

"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.

"Please make sure all your dressers are bolted and secured to the wall."
