A washing machine is not hard to take apart but the child was most likely gotten out faster with the jaws of life. "SAFETY FIRST"

The parents will now have to buy a new washer, hopefully that will motivate them to pay more attention to their children.

I wonder why the child was on top of the machine in the first place.

You obviously don't have children. My son wasn't a climber, but when I was keeping children in my home, I had a little who climbed on, swung from, tore down anything he could get his hands on. With me right there. He spent a lot of time in time out.

Children, me? oh yes.

Thing is I started teaching my children early about what the words "Safety First" means in life.

A child should know about safety long before he/she learns how to play with video games.

Parents don't really care about their children like "some" would like you to believe, if they did you would never see a child run or skate in stores and that is just a starter.

I couldn't have said this better. I come from Miami, not far from the mall where Adam Walsh was abuducted. I learned at an early age that it isn't safe to be without adults. I can't imagne what horrible pain it is to lose a child, but I know it would be a lot worse if you couldhave done something about it: people, watch your children! this world is not the one you might have grown up in, there are all kinds if nuts just waiting to see some kid alone. If your kid is alone long enough toget caught in a washer, how long were you not paying attention? Are you deaf too? Didn't you question the noises you heard?
