Baby in Washing Machine

by - November 16, 2009

You know how some radio/television stations will do "Dumb Crook News"? Well, today I dedicate my blog to "Dumb Parents News."

A mother accidentally washed her baby in a laundromat in Mississippi this past weekend.

She failed to notice her 7-month-old baby in with all the clothes. The poor thing went through the first minute of the machine's cycle.

Luckily three men were paying attention and came to the baby's rescue, prying off the door. The baby was completely purple, bruised and bleeding, but some bystanders performed CPR and the baby is doing well.

Now how, you may ask, did this mother fail to realize she was putting her baby in the washing machine? Well, here's the story as told by the police...

While the mother was loading the washing machine, her two little boys were playing in one of these rolling hampers --->

Apparently one of them put the baby in the washing machine and closed the door while his mom's back was turned, and she just turned on the machine.

Now I'm no expert by any means, but I'd like to think I would notice if my 7-month-old baby was suddenly not where I left him/her. I mean, it's not like he/she can get up and walk away on their own.
