Parents Nightmare

It was just late last year when a video of a toddler pulling his twin brother from underneath a fallen chest of drawers took YouTube by storm.

The twins were climbing the drawers when it fell under their combined weight, throwing one clear, but trapping the other underneath. Thankfully, the trapped toddler was pulled free by his heroic sibling and was unharmed. You can see the entire terrifying event in this ABC News Article.

However, not all toddlers in similar circumstances have been as lucky. In 2013, a two-year-old girl was crushed by a 37-inch television in Perth and did not survive her injuries. During the inquest into the incident that took place in 2016, the mother of the child indicated that she did not perceive the television as a threat because it was “not particularly heavy”. Having seen the damaged caused however, the mother urged people to either put their TVs on the wall or use approved straps. (ABC News, 2016)
