Was the viral toddler video a complete hoax?

On Tuesday, national news was abuzz with a video of a toddler saving his twin after a dresser fell over. The twins' father, Ricky Shoff, shared the video on Facebook:

Soon after the seemingly incredible feat by Schoff's son, Bowdy, went viral, the family received backlash from online commenters claiming that the video is fake.

"HOAX! Come on people, nothing in the drawers," one commenter wrote. "Dad works for Cam company! Cam facing wrong direction! No one comes right away! FRAUD. 15 minutes of fame."

Other skeptics, too, cite the fact that Shoff works for the nanny cam company -- and that the dresser was empty.

Another commenter had the same sentiment: "Obviously fake. Your kids should be taken away for using them as a publicity stunt."

The Shoff family stand by the video. In an interview with Fox News, Shoff cannot believe people think it's a hoax. "I'm not sure how they would be able to think that it was a stunt after watching the full video," he said.

"It's obvious there isn't any editing to the video and to put my sons in a position where the dresser does fall on them on purpose is a horrible thought," he continued. "How would you even stage that even if we were professionals with experience in such?"
