(YOUTUBE) – A father and son goofing around in a laundromat takes a dangerous turn when the child gets stuck inside an active washing machine. And it was all caught on camera.

You can see from this surveillance video that the dad put the child in the machine while playing around. When he shut the door it locked and the automatic cycle began with the child locked inside.

The panicked parents banged and pulled on the door as the child continued to spin inside the machine. Finally the dad found an employee who unplugged the machine.
