Toddler Hero: 2-year-old saves his brother from a tight spot

The Daily Catch - published on 01/03/17

We’ve all heard the stories about a mother channeling super-human strength to lift a car off a trapped child, but this is a much different twist!

Bowdy and Brock Shoff were playing in their room last week and they climbed up on a large dresser. Footage from the video camera in the boys’ room shows the dresser suddenly falling, trapping Brock underneath. Bowdy can be seen walking around the dresser and seemingly trying to figure out how to free his brother. Finally, Bowdy was able to push the dresser off Brock enough for him to wriggle free. Both the boys were fine after the scary incident.

It was so scary when the dresser fell. We’re glad he is alright.
