Baby survives washing machine ordeal

Seven-month-old doing well after being put in for a spin


A 7-month-old baby is recovering in hospital after accidentally getting shut in a washing machine.


The baby crawled into the machine in America without her mum, Irzu Hrenandex, noticing. Her 4-year-old brother then closed the door, before mum, Iruz switched the machine on for a cycle.

When Irzu realized what had happened, she ran to a nearby restaurant and three men raced round to force the door open.


Estimated to be in the machine for about a minute, the baby emerged battered and bruised but is expected to make a full recovery.
