Clearly distressed, he struggles to free himself before his brother Bowdy springs into action.

After struggling to shift the large piece of furniture from the wall end, the two-year-old calmly moves round to the top before using all of his strength to heroically lift it enough for his brother to wriggle free.

Posting on Facebook, Brock and Bowdy’s father Ricky said he was thankful for Bowdy’s heroic actions and urged parents to ensure all their dressers are bolted and secured to the wall, 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.”
