This dad shared about his ‘brutal experience’ involving his infant at home. While washing some clothes in the laundry room, dad took a close look at the laundry machine, which was already running – and saw something horrifying that left him breathless. His baby’s smiling face was starring right back at him from inside the washing machine.
Dad was horrified and feared for his baby’s life! The social media post accumulated more than 3,400 upvotes and counting. There were also dozens of comments shared by people from across the globe.
Fortunately, the baby was not really in the washer. Instead, mom had put a t-shirt into the machine that had the baby’s face printed on the front of it. Dad was able to breathe a sigh of relief when he realized it was not really his baby in the washer, but it took him some time before his pounding heart relaxed and returned to normal.
Dad decided to snap a picture of the washing machine to show people on Imgur how he was not as crazy as they might think. The baby really does appear to be inside the washing machine. Dad contributed the following comment about what he saw in the laundry room that set his heart racing. He also said that his wife ‘made a terrible mistake because she didn’t put a warning note on the washer. The dad reportedly said: “Please, if you are ever washing your favorite shirt with a picture of your child on it, just put a warning note on the washer or something..”
One social media user suggested a sensible solution to this baby-in-the-laundry problem: “Turn your shirts inside out. The prints will last so much longer!” However, parents – and pet owners – need to be careful that their little ones and furry friends are not in the dryer or washing machine before they start a load.
