This is terrible! A French 3 year old little boy died after been locked inside a washing machine. This is just awful. His father was arrested for the crime last Friday. According to the news story the little boy was being punished for flushing a classmate's drawing down the toilet. The mother is also being charged for not preventing a crime and not assisting a person in danger. According to the toddler's 5 year old sister, this isn't the first time this has happened. My question is, how could his mother let this happen? She is suppose to protect her little boy.
