Why on Earth would parents ever place their toddler in a washing machine? There have been so many nightmares of young kids falling inside washing machines that have ended in tragedy, so what would make parents purposefully put their child into a front-loading machine?
Sadly, there are many people in this world who are not the brightest bulbs in the pack. This video footage showcases two of the world's dumbest people - and that is putting it kindly. The video is very upsetting, so please only watch this if you think you can stomach it.
The video, taken from the laundromat's security cameras, shows a father scoop up his toddler and place him inside a front-loading washing machine. The child's mother is right there doing laundry and the couple seems to find it funny seeing their toddler in a washing machine. That is, until they realize that the door has locked shut and they cannot open it. Water begins to fill the machine and you can see the toddler being tossed around while the parents desperately attempt to open the door to stop the machine.
Several moments go by before an attendant at the laundromat is able to disable the washing machine, and several more moments go by before the toddler, in a washing machine, is retrieved.
The video showcases one of the absolute worst examples of parenting there is. The parents should be arrested for endangering the life of their child. There is no indication, however, whether any charges will be pressed against the parents of the toddler.
Thankfully, aside from a few cuts and bruises, the toddler is fine - traumatized, probably, but alive.
