Jozef Dudek's father found the toddler trapped under the item of furniture, which was recalled past year, in his bedroom.
The family's lawyer told ABC News that the boy, Jozef Dudek, died in May when the three-drawer dresser tipped over during his naptime. The father returned to the room to discover the Ikea dresser had toppled over, with the toddler underneath of it. The parents of little Jozef Dudek indicate that they have not had knowledge of the risk that could represent the piece of furniture with three drawers.
It is unclear how numerous 29 million dressers have been either repaired, returned or destroyed.
Feldman added, "It has always been our view that furniture stability should be built into a dresser and anchoring should be a secondary method of securing furniture".
Mann says the design was inherently risky and charged that the company still hasn't done enough to warn consumers who may have one at home.
Ikea offered sympathies to the group of the kid who was murdered.

The groups said CSPC must make a greater effort, "to reach every home with an IKEA dresser, urging families to return any unsafe dresser for a refund, and providing incentives for consumers to remove such a dresser from their homes".
The families of the toddlers were awarded $50 million to be divided among the three families. According to the Enquirer, he is the first child to die since IKEA issued a massive recall for chests and dressers, which can tip over and crush children if they aren't anchored to the wall. The redesign was executed to ensure that the retailer's furniture met the voluntary American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) stability standards.
Ikea argued, in an official statement, that they spread news of the recall to the best of their abilities, stating that they used social media, email campaigns, national news stories, and their website to inform their customers.
Last year, Ikea recalled its Malm dresser, a low-priced piece of furniture that was cited in the deaths of three small children, due to it tipping over.
Safety standards for dressers are now optional. The company reiterated its safety warnings in April 2016 after a third child died. The bill, titled the STURDY Act, proved to be unsuccessful.
