Dudek family lawyer Daniel Mann told ABC that's exactly what happened to Jozef during his nap time and that family is "absolutely distraught" over his death.

A 2-year-old boy in California is reportedly the eighth child to be killed by an Ikea dresser that was recalled in June 2016.

Ikea recalled a total of 29 million items sold in the U.S. a year ago after the products failed industry safety tests because they could fall over when unattached to a wall.

Jozef Dudek died on May 24 when an IKEA Malm dresser fell on him.

Jozef is believed to be the first confirmed death since Ikea recalled the dresser past year.

"Sadly, Jozef's death was completely avoidable, had IKEA adhered to safe design standards", said Feldman.

The attorney declined to give further details about the boy's death but said his family plan on suing Ikea.

A spokesperson from the do-it-yourself furniture giant said to the news outlet, "Our hearts go out to the affected family, and we offer our honest condolences during this most hard time".

IKEA has already paid out an incredible £38 million in compensation to three other families affected by similar tragedies.

The heavy, wooden pieces of furniture are prone to wobbling and falling over if not anchored to a wall.

"Options available to consumers include having the chest removed free of charge from the consumers' home, having the chest anchored to the wall in the home free of charge, receiving a free wall anchor kit for self-installation or returning the product for a refund", a spokesperson for IKEA said in a statement sent to ABC.

"When we all work together, we can reduce the risk of home accidents", the website states.
