Worst Parent Ever Caught on Surveillance?

Author: John Honovich, Published on May 21, 2012

Some things are almost beyond comprehension - like this surveillance video. Take a look:

What possessed this father to put his child in a washing machine is unclear. Needless to say, it's terrible.

Thankfully the child is reportedly okay.

[UPDATE: The mother is now claiming that it was the babysitter and her 'male friend' who put the baby in the washing machine.]

The surveillance video hopefully helps in two ways:

  • As a public service announcement to other parents/babysitters about the dangers of being either incredibly stupid or malicious (depending on what the father was intending).
  • As a means to prevent liability to the laundromat. Absent the surveillance, the couple could have made up a crazy story deflecting blame. With the video, the laundromat is completely clear.
