In Arizona and other cities throughout the United States, household appliances can be very dangerous to small children. What seems like a fun play area to an infant, toddler, or child can prove to be very dangerous or even deadly. The household appliance known as the dryer is not a playground or toy for a child. Once inside, a child can sustain serious personal injuries including head injuries. Parents and caregivers should keep children out of the laundry room and certainly out of the appliances. Some family members thought it was cute when the 1 year old was in the dryer. Again, the dryer is not a toy. For more information on this story, go to Arizona Man Accused of Putting Child in Dryer.
There was even a recent incident in California where a child died as a result of suffering head injuries after he crawled into a washing machine and a sibling turned it on. You can read about this story at California Girl Dies After Crawling Into Front Loading Washing Machine.
