Parents deny viral video of toddler rescuing twin from fallen dresser was staged

A Utah couple is speaking out against skeptics' claims that a viral video of their toddler son saving his twin brother from a fallen dresser was staged for publicity.

>> Utah dad shares video of 2-year-old saving twin brother from fallen dresser

In an interview Wednesday with Fox News, Ricky Shoff, an employee of the company that made the family's nanny cam, balked at allegations that he would intentionally put his children in danger.

"It's obvious there isn't any editing to the video, and to put my sons in a position where the dresser does fall on them on purpose is a horrible thought," he said. "How would you even stage that even if we were professionals with experience in such?"

In another interview with CNN, Shoff's wife, Kayli, had a similar response.

"Why would we put our child in harm's way?" she asked.

<iframe width="390" height="219" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/lcrm-n9jCVQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The video, which Shoff shared on Facebook over the weekend, has been viewed millions of times on social media. The dramatic clip shows a dresser falling on his 2-year-old son, Brock. The boy's brother, Bowdy, quickly comes to the rescue, pushing the dresser off his twin.

"I've been a little hesitant to post this. But I feel it's not only to bring awareness, but it is also incredible," Shoff wrote in the Facebook post. "We are so grateful for the bond that these twin brothers share. We know Bowdy was not alone in moving the dresser off of Brock. And feel blessed that he is OK. Please make sure all your dressers are bolted and secured to the wall. Please share."

The couple told CNN that the reaction to the video has been mostly positive.

"A lot of people have messaged us since, (saying,) 'Hey, we've now got our dressers bolted,'" Shoff said.

But some critics blasted the parents for not watching the children more closely or securing the children's furniture. 

"You can't 100 percent child-proof your home," Kayli told CNN. "I think it's impossible."

Others were suspicious, wondering why the camera was pointed directly at the dresser, which was empty at the time.

"I'm not sure how they would be able to think that it was a stunt after watching the full video," Shoff told Fox News.

Dentist says controversial restraint technique can help soothe younger patients

While some providers said a new restraint technique can help children cope better at the dentist’s office, opponents say it can actually traumatize children. 

Dr. Brian Martin, division chief of pediatric dentistry at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, said that although the “papoose board” is controversial, it can be crucial to a child’s dental visit. 

“A lot of things we do in dentistry involve a lot of instruments that are near the face, obviously, and we don’t want to have a circumstance where we put the patient at risk,” Martin said. 

>> Read more trending stories

The restraint devices are used in Pittsburgh and nationwide, but not every dentist or parent approves. WPXI.com found a case in California where a girl suffered cuts and bruises in a papoose board. In Texas, a 4-year-old is said to have suffered brain damage, and other critics said it causes “dental PTSD.” 

Those are all risks that Martin said he doesn’t take lightly, and he admits that things can go very wrong if the device isn’t used properly. For example, if a restraint is very tight, it could limit the ability to breathe, or limit circulation to a child’s limbs. 

Martin said that every doctor needs to follow the guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry when deciding if a child needs to be restrained. That includes assessing a child’s developmental level, dental attitudes and temperament. Additionally, Martin said he will never use the papoose board without a parent’s consent. 

Melissa Hartman, whose son C.J. is 8 and was trying out the papoose board, said she reassured her son and explained how the restraints work. 

“I think, just a parent explaining it to him, to them, that, ‘You’re OK. It’s for your safety,' (helps)," Hartman said. 

Martin said the papoose board can be very soothing for children on the autism spectrum. His best advice for parents is to come up with a treatment plan together with their dentist. 

Formerly conjoined twins move to rehab after emotional farewell from hospital staff

Twin boys born conjoined at the head are now in rehab after being discharged from the New York hospital where they recovered for months following a successful separation surgery.

Jadon and Anias McDonald have captured the hearts of the country as CNN followed their tricky separation at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center.

Two months ago, the boys underwent a 27-hour-long surgery to separate them. CNN reports that their recovery was one of the fastest ever.

Earlier this month, the boys left Montefiore Medical Center and are now at Blythedale Children’s Hospital in suburban New York, where they will undergo months of physical therapy.

On their way out of the hospital, more than 30 medical staff lined the hallways to bid a festive farewell to the boys they have grown to love over the past two months. The boys’ father, Christian McDonald, and mom Nicole say the medical staff has become more like family over the past few months.

Is it OK to leave children alone in a car? Facebook post sparks debate

An Alaska mayor's viral Facebook post about finding two children alone inside a running car in a supermarket parking lot has sparked a heated debate among parents.

"I am so angry right now," Fairbanks Mayor Jim Matherly wrote Dec. 20. "I just stood next to an UNLOCKED car, running with keys in the ignition with TWO little kids in the back seat. Fred Meyer parking lot. People everywhere. 10 minutes I stood there. Finally, Mom came out with Starbucks. I tried talking to her, warning her about her choice. She kept saying 'they're fine' and she was angry with me. Not even a 'thank you.' Unreal. Do NOT leave your kids alone in a running car, especially with unlocked doors. And YES (Fairbanks police) will be calling her."
