Mom of Twins In Fallen Dresser Rescue Speaks Out: ‘I Felt Like the Worst Parent Ever’

My heart STOPPED earlier this week when I watched the harrowing video of 2-year-old twins Brock and Bowdy Shoff playing in their room when disaster struck: the dresser they were climbing on fell over, trapping Brock. I was riveted, holding my breath as Bowdy walked around the dresser, trying to figure out how to free his brother, and then AMAZINGLY, pushed the dresser off him with all his 2-year-old might, and I suspect, some supernatural strength from God!

After the video, which the twins’ parents released to warn other parents to bolt kids’ furniture to the walls, wet viral, the twins’ mother Kayli Shoff gave an interview on Good Morning America yesterday, saying she felt like “the worst parent ever” for not having the dresser bolted to the wall for safety.

She said when she saw on the video monitor that the dresser was down on the floor, “My heart sank. I honestly felt like the worst parent ever. It was such an easy thing for me that I could’ve done to prevent what happened to my children.”
