Disturbing Video: Parents put toddler in laundry mat washing machine
Maybe they thought it would be funny — there’s a large sign hanging above the machines, saying “Junior Wash: $2.95.” Whatever it was, it could have easily ended badly.
In the silent footage from the laundromat’s security camera, the dad scoops up the diaper-clad toddler, shoves him head first into the front-loading washer, and shuts the door. He and the mom seem amused at first, but panic quickly sets in when they realize that they can’t get the washer door open. It’s locked automatically, and the tot is trapped inside as the washer starts to run.
The toddler tumbles helplessly, trapped in the machine, water pouring in, while the parents struggle with the locked door and then search for help. Finally, an attendant runs over and disables the machine. It takes a few more seconds to get the door open and the child out.
