The parents of the toddler who saved his twin brother after a dresser fell on top of him are now speaking out following the release of the heart stopping video that has now gone viral.

The Utah parents say they shared the video on Facebook to raise awareness of the importance of securing dressers to the wall.

The Shoffs say they didn't hear the dresser fall and never heard any screams - only finding out what happened when they watched the video back.

"So I fling open the door and they are quietly playing - no injuries, not crying at all," said mom, Kayli Shoff. "So I pulled it up and watched it and I already knew they were ok. My heart dropped - as you can imagine."

Mom says they felt like the worst parents having watched this all unfold and have since bolted that dresser to the wall.

They say if this helps spare even one other child from having an accident, it was worth it.
