Babysitters Arrested After Snapchat Footage of Baby Being Shut In Fridge Surfaced
Two babysitters have been arrested after shocking Snapchat footage emerged of them putting a baby in a fridge while laughing.
During the short clip a crying baby is picked up from the floor and put in the fridge, before the door is slammed shut.
A girl is heard saying: “Bye!” as she leaves the child, who is wearing just a nappy, in the cold and dark.
A further clip filmed shows the same girl rocking the baby in her arms and saying: “Hi baby. See, he’s okay!”
The appalling incident took place at around 4.30pm on Monday in Danvers, Massachusetts, USA
The child’s mother told ABC affiliate WCVB that the two babysitters are her niece and the niece’s friend.
“I was horrified. I was in shock,” the mother said. “I’m traumatized from that. I don’t want anyone near my child anymore.”
She added: “I know she wouldn’t hurt my daughter and that wasn’t her intentions. I think it was all foolishness, stupidity. I will no longer be leaving my children with my niece or her friends again ever in my life.”
