Two-Year-Old Boy Miraculously Saved By His Twin Brother

The home is seen primarily as an area of comfort and sanctuary from the world.

Nevertheless, accidents which are often referred to as domestic accidents still take place in this supposed sanctuary from the outside world.

Domestic accidents occur in the home and around home environments and are basically one of the four major causes of deaths in the world.

The study and prevention of domestic accidents, which includes accidents in and around the home and in institutions, is of increasing importance.

The mortality statistics released by NCBI show that an estimated 8,335 people died from accidents in the UK in 2010, a figure equivalent to the population of a reasonably sized town.

Domestic accidents form one of the four main causes of death in this country and have become relatively more common in recent years.

A two-year-old was at risk of joining the statistic of children who die from home accidents every year.

The boy’s mother who has been identified as Kayli Shoff told KUTV-TV that she didn’t hear the dresser falling and only saw what happened after watching the video.

The boys’ father posted a link to the video on Facebook on Sunday writing that his son was alright and reminding parents of the importance of securing dressers to the wall.

The video which has also been posted to YouTube as a warning about dangerous furniture in nurseries and toddler bedrooms has garnered many comments from concerned parents.

Horrified parents praised mum Kayli Shoff for raising awareness and sent messages of support.

One of such parents, a mom wrote,

‘Omg poor baby ugh. This hurts my heart but glad he’s okay. I  have an almost 2-year-old just pictured her little face. OMG thank the Lord he’s ok.’

Another mum wrote,

‘This fellow twin mom is so happy these boys are okay!!’.

Paula Mooney added,

‘Brought tears to my eyes. Thank God for that miraculous strength!’

We will never understand how a two-year-old was able to lift a dresser, a burst of adrenaline perhaps, but it is indeed fortunate that he was able to perform the amazing feat.
