There's no way to know what the parents were thinking. Maybe they were trying to scare their kid into good behavior. Maybe they were just goofing around. 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 in tragedy.

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. (Warning: The video is disturbing).

Go here to watch the video.
 
I can't blame them, this is exactly the kind of thing that I would do.

Aside: the washer locks and starts as soon as you close the door? Why?
 
I wonder what it is inside me that made me need to watch that video all the way through... weird.

That's some fucked up shit though. Glad the kid's okay.
 
Don't even need to watch the video! It's enough to read the thread title

'Think how insane that is!"
 
Natural selection.

Because, unlike having a human is inside the machine, it closes so idiots don't open it and have a nice flood in the area with all their clothes. Unlike dryers, where they open as much as they like, because people DO die going in dryers - smh
 
Not what I meant. Why does it lock and start automatically when the door is first closed? Why isn't there a start button?

That's usually how they all work, and the same thing -- the dryers have a start button. :eek:

Maybe because they didn't think of someone would put a child in a Washing Machine. But yeah it's stupid! Well, there should be some kind of safety.
 
lol, when i was younger playing hide and seek i hid in the washing machine but couldnt get the door closed. Called my mum and asked her to close it so no one would find me and she freaked out. ahah, hid me in the dryer instead and explained the difference. Great parents... ahaa ReVolver knows what he's talkin about :p
