A disturbing video has emerged of a mother and father putting their nappy-clad toddler into a washing machine at a laundromat somewhere in the US. There's no way to know what the parents were thinking. Maybe they were trying to scare their kid into good behaviour. Maybe they were just goofing around. Maybe they thought it would be funny -- there's a large sign hanging above the machines, saying "Junior Wash: $2.95." Whatever it was, it could have easily ended in tragedy.
