Brock and Bowdy Shoff, from Utah, were playing in their bedroom when it fell onto Bowdy trapping him underneath.
As he lies underneath, wriggling, you can see the weight of the piece of furniture on little Bowdy’s rib cage, which must have been agony.
The whole thing was caught on CCTV at the family home and has since gone viral after their Dad, Ricky, posted it to Facebook with the caption: “I’ve been a little hesitant to post this. But I feel it’s not only to bring awareness, but it is also incredible.
Their mum Kayli told WREG that she left the room for a couple of minutes and didn’t hear the dresser fall or Bowdy crying. When she returned to the room she saw the dresser on the floor but because both the boys were happy and playing she didn’t realise what had happened until she watched back the footage.
