Before the crash, the boy was seen playing with the drawers, opening and closing each one. He then opens all four of them simultaneously, leans on the second one from the top to pull himself back up, and that’s when the near-tragedy strikes.

The boy doesn’t appear to have suffered any injuries and is checked by a woman within seconds of the accident.
