so sad. this is the first i am hearing of this. when my daughter was 2 she pulled out the bottom drawer of a 4 ft. dresser to climb up to reach her sneakers. the dresser fell on her and she screamed. i ran in and could only see her two little hands sticking out. she was bruised very badly and thankfully survived. this brings back that memory for me. I feel for the family, may she RIP. my deepest condolences to the family.
