Colorado mom posts warning after 3-year-old locked in washing machine
CONIFER, Colo. -- A Colorado mom posted a warning to parents after her 3-year-old daughter got locked inside a front-loading washing machine. Lindsey McIver of Conifer posted the warning on Facebook last week and it has since gone viral with over 296,000 shares. “On Monday my husband went to Lowe’s and purchased this new front load washing machine,” McIver wrote. “We thought it was the ‘new and cool’ type of washing machine and didn’t think anything of it. We spent that evening installing it with the kids underfoot. We told them several times that they were not to touch it. They all replied ‘OK.’”
