A thorough investigate was completed. Our system records told us that a customer swiped their laundry card about an hour before the event occurred; however, the wash credit remained on the machine because they didn't use the machine. However, when Sondra's friend, placed Samir, a 13 month old toddler, into the washer and LOCKED the door, the machine started and placed a permanent lock. After Samir got stuck in the washing machine, they frantically searched for help, and found Kong Enh, a Federal Laundromat employee, who came to the rescue, tossing aside tables to shut off the machine's circuit breaker. Finally, Samir was freed from the machine.
Samir is well and was safely returned to Samir's mother, Sakai David. Although the Camden County Prosecutor's Office states, "This was not an intelligent choice to put the baby in the washing machine but it was not a crime," Sakai David announced that she will be pressing charges against Sondra on charges of negligence.
**Note: the people in the video are NOT the parents. Samir was left in his father's girlfriend (Sondra)'s care while, Sakai (Samir's mother) was at work. Samir's father was/is in jail, and is aware of the video**
