General Parents put 3 month old in Washing Machine and turn it on (Video)

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

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

    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.
  • Varine Varine:
    Have fun, do your best, something about Edison's light bulb not working until he stole it.
  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore

    Or walking with my then-fiancee through the night until dawn, just talking
