This video has been floating around the internet. There's no audio as it's surveilance video, but you get a great visual of this epic parental faliure.

Here's the run-down... Mom & dad are hanging out in the laundrymat. You know - just chillin' when dad decides to pick up toddling child and place it inside of an industrial front load washing machine. Yes. You read that right. IN the washing machine.

It's all fun & games until the door to the machine is shut, and it starts to fill with water! Then panic ensues as the parents try in futile desperation to free their child. It takes a laundrymat employee to shut down the machine to free the poor kid. The parents scoop the child up & run off.

Reports say that the child is just fine, but I bet CPS is on the lookout for these parents.
