Mom Of Toddler Who Saved Twin Stuck Under Dresser Speaks


After a video showing a heroic toddler pushing a fallen dresser off his brother in Utah went viral, viewers grew skeptical about the parenting behind the incident.

Although some responses have been harsh, others understand accidents happen.

However, Kayli Shoff, the twins' mother, recently talked about how she reacted when she saw the footage, People reports.

Apparently, she felt like the "worst parent ever."


In an interview that aired on Wednesday's "Good Morning America," Kayli spoke about the moment when she noticed the dresser had fallen over in their nursery via the baby monitor.

After saying she "ripped off the covers, ran downstairs, flung open the door" and found her children --Bowdy and Brock Shoff -- unharmed, she admitted she feels guilty and thinks the accident could have been prevented.

Since the incident, Kayli reportedly bolted the Ikea dresser to the wall and claims she and her husband are "completely lucky" and "blessed" their children made it out of the accident alive.

Apparently, both parents have praised Bowdy for saving his younger brother's life.


To ensure other parents take proper precautions to avoid the same thing happening to their children, Kayli's husband, Ricky Shoff, posted the video on his Facebook page.

In the description, he wrote,

Even though Kayli felt like the "worst parent ever" in the moment, the accident was thankfully a learning experience where no serious harm was caused.
