woke up, looked at the camera, we're like 'what's going on? are they still sleeping?' then we saw that it was all the way down they were just still playing. so we didn't know if it had landed on them." but as they reviewed the bedroom video camera. they were horrified at what they saw-- and immediately
secured the boys' dresser to the wall. kayli shoff: "so, we bolted it to the wall, obviously in the back." kayli says she debated for a few days about sharing the dramatic video. but in the end felt responsible to help raise awareness about the dangers of unsecured dressers. "everybody needs to bolt down their dressers to the wall. i mean, we just didn't think about it. so, accidents are gonna happen.so accidents are gonna happen. so, we just want awareness to this one accident that happened and hope that it doesn't happen to any other family." --nats-- while the video of the dresser falling over is hard to watch. it also captures little bowdy trying to help withbrother. kayli shoff: "bowdy just came around and, again, assessed the situation, thinking 'i need to help my twin brother. what do i do here?' so, he sat there and thought. tried to left it at first. obviously, that didn't work. so he just pushed with all of his might and it just pushed it right off of his brother. i really believe in the twin bond. you always hear that. and i really think these two have it." that video of those twins is leading some safety experts to remind parents to protest their most precious investments. grant lodes is here with the sobering statistics.and advice about how to prevent a tragedy
in your home. >> grant:the numbers are alarming. some 33-thosuand people are injured every year when furniture tips over on them. experts are urging people to anchor items to the wall so they cannot tip over. most people are not as lucky as the kids in this now viral video. experts recommend filling the lowest drawers with the heaviest items in a piece of furniture. also.do not put toys or other eiticing things on top of it.don't make it alluring at the top. and, if possible.lock the drawers. no, as a parent it's not convienent to unlock a drawer every time you have to open it. but.if you're looking to take every precaution. not a bad idea. when you cosider every two weeks.a child dies from furniture falling on them.
over the last few days it's estimated they will have spent nine billion dollars. good news for retailers obviously but, shoppers may soon see their spending bbble burst as brexit pushes up prices. already we're seeing the impact brits will have to pay 11% more for an apple iphone. why? because of this. over the last 6 months sterling has been wildly fluctuating for example, this £10 pound note
has been worth anywhere between 12 and 15 dollars. these swings coupled with a lack of clarity over brexit a plan makes it difficult for retailers to protect themselves against loses. -richard hyman, retail analyst: "i think it's going to be extremely difficult for retailers to protect themselves against price rises, against the impact of a devalued sterling. if you and i trade side by side on the high street in competition, my currency hedging runs out three months before yours does and i put my prices up-- guess where my customers are going to go? i think it's going to be extremely difficult to make price rises stick." the u-k also relies heavily on imports: clothes made in south east asia. technology from china imports which could become more expensive currently the uk enjoys cheaper trade tariffs as part of being in the e-u. if the country fails to reach the right deal with the bloc it+ will have to use world trade organisation rules, which come with higher tariffs.
