It's a video that has many people asking "What was he thinking?" A father jokingly puts his son in the washing machine at the laundromat and the joke goes horribly wrong.
A surveillance video posted on YouTube shows the father putting the toddler in the machine and closing the door. But then the door locks and the automatic cycle starts with the toddler still inside.
The parents are seen banging and pulling on the door but can't get it open. The father then runs to the back of the laundromat to get help. An employee runs to the machine and turns it off, then pulls the child out of the machine.
