    I occasionally see these signs that say things like "Please don't place children in washing machines. They can drown and die."

    And I'm always like "Oh, they just put that to make sure they don't get a frivolous law suit. Nobody would really do that."

    You missed the mention of the French incident, which was a lot worse.

    This is one of the reasons I think not everyone should be allowed to have children. :frown:

    Report about this video going viral on the news tonight.

    Turns out these weren't the parents. The woman was a babysitter and the man, her boyfriend. The mother found out about the incident two weeks later after the video went viral.

    Good one. But the babysitter's boyfriend' s genes will be passed on. And so will the parents'.

    True. At least the toddler made it out.

    Wow, I can't imagine being the mother and seeing her child tumbling in a washing machine online. I wonder how the babysitter explained the baby's injuries?

    Oops! You sneaked in ahead of me.

    It wasn't his father. It was the babysitter's boyfriend. The baby's mother never even knew about the incident until she saw the video, and she intends to press charges. The NJ prosecutor has declined to press charges, but we'll see...

    It seems the babysitter is in a bit of a...soapy situation.
    How is the prosecuter not pressing charges?

    Apparently the child is relatively unhurt - probably had a few bruises.

    The baby was not injured.

    Good one. I expect she'll be looking for work elsewhere now.

    Or at least a new boyfriend.

    Yes he had multiple bruises and was taken to the ER by the babysitter to be checked. The babysitter told the mother that the injuries were from a fall down the steps.

    I believe the title of this thread should be fixed.
