A father was caught on tape placing his toddler into a front-loading washing machine at a laundromat.
Video was obtained from the laundromat’s closed circuit video surveillance camera and shows a couple with a small child doing laundry. For reasons unknown, the father proceeds to place the child into the washing machine and close the door. The father then realizes the machine is filling with water and immediately tries to open the door to the machine but apparently the doors lock automatically. The parents desperately try to free the child from the washer. Finally after about 30 seconds a person who appears to work for the laundromat is able to free the child. No word on whether the parents will be investigated.
