Two-Year-Old Boy Drowns In A Washing Machine

A mother’s worse nightmare has sadly come true when she found her toddler in the washing machine with no pulse and no hearbeat.

Tiffany Hebb probably thought it was just another laundry day when she reached into her washing machine on March 23, but instead of finding clothes she found her adorable blue-eyed, nearly 2-year-old son Ollie Hebb in the appliance. “The worst day of my life,” she says of the event, according to The Daily Mail.

When she went to pull him out of the washing machine, he was stuck. With the help of a neighbor he was free, but he wasn’t breathing. Ollie’s heart was restarted an hour later, but was later put on life support for 24 hours before Tiffany and the boy’s father Chris Hebb decided to let him go on March 24.

“Every time I wake up, I think this is a nightmare and then realize it’s real,” the heartbroken father says. “You hear a baby crying in the night from a neighbor’s house. You wake up, hoping it’s your little boy, and then realize he’s not there.”

Only two children under the age of five have died in washing machines between 2005 and 2009, according to a 2011 report by The Consumer Products Safety Commission.

It is tragic and may be a rare occurrence, but it can happen! Watch your little ones, HollyMoms.
