Is The ‘Twins Dresser Rescue’ Video A Hoax? [Video]
Have we been fooled?
Internet skeptics think the video that went viral earlier this week is a hoax. It shows a dresser falling on top of a 2-year-old boy; then, his twin brother somehow manages to push the dresser off of him. The incident was captured on a nanny camera, and the boys' mother, Kayli Shoff, said she decided to release the video as a public service about the dangers of unsecured furniture.
According to the New York Post, the doubters believe the video is not real because:
- The dresser drawers are empty.
- The direction of the nanny cam: It's pointed at the dresser instead of the boys’ bed.
- It's suspicious that no one heard the toddler crying or the dresser falling.
- The father works at the company that sells the nanny cam.
It's difficult to believe that any parent would put the life of their child at stake to stage a video where the outcome could have been disastrous.
Watch the video again and judge for yourself. Let us know what you think.
