Me and my son escaped being killed or severely injured by the fall of a huge piece of wall-mounted furniture

Part of a huge dry-wall mounted bookcase collapsed into the floor where I was standing seconds before, and beside my son's bed. After the heart-pounding eased a bit, we've found his forehead was struck by some decorative object, perhaps, but no serious injury happened.

After moving the debris and collecting the books, toys and other objects from the floor, we all had a terrible night, with my kids having an unrestful, frightened, sleep, what made me and my wife also not being able to recover fully.

"What does not kill us makes us stronger", some believe, but I would rather have had a good night of sleep...
