Prosecutor: No charges over boy in washing machine
CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) – A New Jersey prosecutor won’t file charges after a toddler briefly got stuck in a washing machine.
The child’s mother wasn’t happy after she saw a video of what happened when a baby sitter took the boy to a Camden laundromat.
Speaking on NBC’s “Today” show Thursday, Sakia David said she wanted the baby sitter punished for allowing a male friend to put the child in the machine.
Authorities say the man was unaware the machine would automatically start and the prosecutor says no one would be charged.
David said she didn’t even know about the May 11 incident in Camden until she saw the video on the news and was contacted by police.
David says the baby sitter told her the child had fallen down some steps.
