Boy Trapped In Laundry Machine

The search is on for the New Jersey father who was caught on camera for putting his young son inside an active washing machine. Authorities are locating the family in order to ensure the child wasn’t hurt.

The May 11 incident at the Camden laundry facility was filmed via surveillance and turned viral after the video was posted on YouTube.  Authorities say the matter is not criminal but has been referred to the state’s Division of Youth and Family Services.

According to the Daily Mail, the owner of the facility said that the father’s actions were “ridiculous,” and was thankful her employee was able to get the boy out before he was hurt. She does not know the toddler’s parents, but reported the incident to Camden police.

The video is of a horrible prank two parents pulled on their young son. The father was shown putting his child — who was still in diapers — into the drum of a washing machine.

Next, in a baffling move, he shuts the door! The machine locked and started an automatic cycle — with the kid still inside!

The parents, wildly frantic, try to pull on the door as the machine spun around. They then run for help. Luckily, an employee quickly responds and unplugs the machine. The child was pulled out and he looked unharmed. The parents ran out of the business.

Police are now trying to locate and identify the family in order to ensure the safety of the child.

But then again, there is another teeth whitening product that stands out among the
rest: a teeth whitening pen. It’s plaque fighting formula will also help prevent stains from returning once they are gone. There are no messy strips or trays to wear and it will only take seconds to apply.

Who in there right mind would do this?? This video made me cry. It made me sick, I absoultely cannot believe that someone would do that to a child. Who ever that was is out of their mind and they should be put in prison! I’m going to say a prayer for that child. May God be with him & watch over him.

Just saw on the news that the mother of this baby didn’t even know it had happened until she saw it on tv. The baby was being babysat by the babys’ fathers’ girlfriend. They still don’t know who the man is that put the baby in the washer but police are now involved and trying to track the guy down. The baby was taken to the hospital and given a clean bill of health. It was on CBS news this evening. Be careful who you leave your kids with!

I watched the video on my cable DVR in super slow motion. The girlfriend looked at the man put the cold in the machine then LOOKED RIGHT AT THE SURVEILLANCE CAMERA! This was no accident! Can I get a reward???
