Video has captured the moment a two-year-old boy rescued his twin brother in the US, after a chest of drawers they were playing in crashed over on top of him.

In the footage, Brock and Bowdy Shoff are seen trying to climb inside drawers in the unit, before it falls over and pins Brock underneath one corner.

His brother then calmly stands thinking about the problem as Brock struggles to free himself, before trying to lift the furniture from different angles and then managing shoving it clear and rescuing his sibling.

The video was posted on Facebook by the boy's father, Ricky Shoff, as a warning to parents to bolt furniture to the wall to prevent accidents.

He wrote: "I've been a little hesitant to post this. 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."

Mr Shoff, of Orem, Utah, said he and his wife were upstairs and did not hear Brock crying when the chest of drawers fell on top of him.

He told KCPQ TV that when his wife went back into the room and saw the furniture on the floor, they did not realise what had happened because the boys were fine and only realised when they watched the video.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) states that a child dies every two weeks in the US when a TV or piece of furniture falls on top of them.
