Dad Shoves Toddler In Washing Machine And Turns It On!

In this silent footage from the laundromat’s security camera, the dad scoops up the diaper-clad toddler, shoves him head first into the front-loading washer, and shuts the door. He and the mom seem amused at first, but panic quickly sets in when they realize that they can’t get the washer door open. It’s locked automatically, and the tot is trapped inside as the washer starts to run.

The toddler tumbles helplessly, trapped in the machine, water pouring in, while the parents struggle with the locked door and then search for help. Finally, an attendant runs over and disables the machine. It takes a few more seconds to get the door open and the child out.

There have been several recent reports about kids dying after getting trapped in a washing machine — in March, 18-month-old Ollie Hebb drowned in a washing machine accident, and a 3-year-old was killed in France after his father put him in one and turned it on to punish him. The child in this video suffered a few bumps and bruises and is fine, according to the person who posted the clip — at least, as fine as one can be living with parents who think it’s funny to stick kids in washing machines. No word on whether the parents will be investigated for, well, anything.

Should the parents be punished for what they have done to their kid? Share your thoughts with us!

Woman Survives Fall in Croc-Infested Water After Bungee Snaps

An Australian woman has survived a terrifying fall after her bungee cord snapped during a 111-metre (364-feet) leap off Africa’s Victoria Falls Bridge, plunging her into the crocodile-infested Zambezi River below.

Erin Langworthy, who suffered only cuts and bruises in the fall on New Year’s Eve, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, said it was a “miracle” that she had survived the plunge into the rapids below the bridge, which borders Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Video footage showed the moment towards the end of the fall that the cord snapped and hurled her into the river. Langworthy had to dive under the water to unravel the rope bound around her feet as she entered the rapids. After unbinding her feet she managed to swim to the river bank on the Zimbabwe side to await assistance. Langworthy was treated at a nearby clinic before being evacuated to South Africa.

A Zambian minister sought to reassure tourists about bungee safety but said the issue would be discussed with the operator.

“The bungee has proven to be a very viable operation considering that more than 50,000 tourists jump on it every year. It has been in operation for 10 years. This is the first time I am hearing of an incident. The probability of an incident is one in 500,000 jumps,” Information Minister Given Lubinda was quoted as saying in a report published on the Lusakatimes.com web site.
