Eighth child dies after Ikea dresser crushes 2-year-old boy Jozef Dudek

Lawyers say an Ikea Malm dresser tipped over and crushed a two-year-old boy despite a recall and repair offer issued more than a year ago.

According to a statement released by the family’s lawyer, in May of this year, Jozef Dudek was put down for a nap by his father only to be found later under the recalled dresser. Jozef could not be revived.

Jozef Dudek is the eighth child to die by an unsecured Ikea Malm dresser and the first child to die since IKEA issued the recall.
