    Okay so where was this and why the F'k were they in the machines? Where was the mother and/or father? Did they try to rid themselves of these children?

    Were the "so-called parents" trying to rid themselves of the "unwanted birth" of these precious children?

    So sad regardless of the reasons;I hope this will bring better protections for children and better security for washing and drying machines.
