Remember that video I posted a few days ago about the kid being placed in a washing machine and getting locked in?
It turns out the kid was at the laundromat with his baby sitter and her boyfriend, and the baby sitter never mentioned the incident to his mother.
A woman whose 1-year-old son made national news when a video went viral of him trapped in a tumbling clothes washer says she had no idea what happened until police showed her the video Wednesday, the Courier-Post in Cherry Hill, N.J., reports.
Sakia David said her son, Saimier Bush, was taken to the Federal Laundromat in Camden, N.J., on May 11 by his babysitter. Police alerted her after learning of the incident from news accounts.
“She never said anything about it,” David, who did not identify the babysitter, said in an interview outside her apartment.
Speaking on NBC’s Today show today, Sakia David said she wants the babysitter punished for allowing a male friend to put the child in the machine.
