The original video is posted as an epic fail which is pretty much way off the mark. Usually an epic fail has a degree of humor to it because of the nature of the ridiculous attempt of one person trying to do something.

In this case there’s nothing epic about it as the video footage shows a babysitter( and you thought Louise Woodward was dangerous) placing a child into s washing machine. While it may have been done in jest, the machine then begins its cycle with the child trapped inside.

Apparently the machine requires a laundry card and someone to manually lock the door to start, then the machine auto-locks when the washer starts so customers don’t flood the laundromat.

This would explain the frantic running around of the guilty party to get the child released.
