Watch: Incredible moment 2-year-old saves his twin brother's life from fallen dresser

There's nothing like a connection between brothers, even when they're only two years old.

A family's "nanny cam" captured the incredible -- yet harrowing -- footage: twin brothers Brock and Bowdy are playing on their dresser when it topples over onto them, and Brock is trapped underneath. Bowdy, who was able to free himself, frantically tries to help his brother, and somehow finds the strength to push the dresser off of his twin as it pins him to the ground.

The toddlers' father, Ricky Shoff, posted the footage on his Facebook on New Year's Day, saying he was a little hesitant to do so, but felt it was necessary.

"I've been a little hesitant to post this," He said, "But I feel it's not only to bring awareness, but it is also incredible. 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. Please share."

It really is incredible to see. Scary, but incredible.

The Shoff family's warning is not the first to come for this kind of danger, and many are not as lucky as their young family has been after this accident. Earlier this month, it was announced that Ikea will pay out a $50 million settlement after the deaths of three young boys when the brand's unanchored MALM dressers fell on them. The retailer has also recalled 29 million items sold in the United States in the last 14 years.
