Dad Sticks Baby in Washing Machine in Joke That Goes Horribly Wrong (VIDEO)

OMG 137

Baby in WasherThe sign said “Junior Wash $2.95," so while doing laundry at his local laundromat, a Washington man decided to be a funny guy and put his baby inside the washing machine. Only when he closed the door, it locked, and the machine turned on ... with his baby inside the machine.

Horrifying footage shows the baby spinning around in the machine and being bounced around as the parents helplessly try to get him out. For at least a full minute, the baby is in there. You can't tell if water is pouring in or not, but the things that could have happened to this child are unimaginable. Watch the video after the jump, but be warned -- it's pretty disturbing.

 

It actually looks more like a dryer to me, but either way, it's horrific to watch, and that kid could have died. Fortunately they were able to get an employee to free the baby, and somehow he's okay. According to Real Talk NY, he came out of it with only minor bruises. How is beyond me, but thank goodness.

More from The Stir: Dad Drowned Son in Washing Machine for Chilling Reason

It doesn't appear the father meant to harm the child, but common sense would dictate that you don't stick your kid in an industrial machine. It's not known if he will face criminal charges, and unless there's a charge for stupidity, I don't know that he should be for what appears to be just serious misjudgment. However, if ever there was a case to be made that people should have to have a license to procreate, this incident should definitely be added to the evidence.

Do cases like this make you think parents should need licenses before having children? Do you think the man should be charged criminally?

In there grand stupidity this family was very lucky there was an attendent who could stop the machine and get the child out. Alot of the 24 hour places near me don't have staff all the time, just a change machine and a number to call if the washer breaks down.

They will probably sue the laundry mat for not having the emergeny shut off button that a lot of them do now. And, ridiculously, they'll probably win.

At some point in the video, while he's putting the child in the machine, the mom looks over...and does nor says anything. Um, she should've said something right then and there to stop this. I would've. Disgusting.

I think that if I was that stupid and irresponsible I would want to be charged because I would feel I deserved it. SICKENING.

No to the license and no to being charged.

I say YES to the license. I've had that thought for many years now as it just blows my mind at the idiots we allow to be in charge of helpless children. This right here is a perfect example of why.
