The incident at Federal Laundromat was captured on a surveillance video. It shows the father putting the child in the machine — apparently as part of a game. He then shut the door, which locked and started an automatic cycle with the child inside.
The parents frantically pulled on the door for a few seconds as the child continued to spin, then ran to get help. An employee then quickly unplugged the machine, and the child was pulled to safety.
