MIAMI, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- A Miami mother says her 6-year-old son became trapped inside an operating washing machine while playing with his sister.
Saraco Black said her young son, Timothy Clark, had been playing with what he thought was a broken washing machine along with his 4-year-old sister when the machine activated with him inside, WPLG-TV, Miami, reported Wednesday.
Black said her daughter, whose name was not reported, then came running for help for her trapped sibling at a Miami laundromat.
"She came to me and said, 'Mommy, my brother is inside the washing machine.' When she said that I got up, went over to the machine and my baby was spinning around inside," Black said.
Black told WPLG-TV she eventually was able to open the machine's door and free her child, who required stitches at an area trauma center.
