Please bolt furniture to the walls

Thankfully everything is OK, however I've just had a rather harrowing afternoon in Emergency. Robert's chest of drawers fell on top of him. Only last night we were saying that we needed to bolt it to the wall... It was taking us a while to get around to it. Please, if you've got kids, don't delay bolting your furniture to the wall. It isn't worth the risk.

Edited to add: Here is how we bolted the chest-of-drawers to the wall.

Yikes! Is he ok?

Other than a sore foot he is fine. We were very very lucky. It could have killed him. I'm so annoyed with myself that the chest-of-drawers wasn't already bolted to the wall. The evening before the accident we were discussing how we were going to bolt it down.
