Lindsey McIver posted what happened to Facebook last week. Her story has since gone viral.
She said that her family had to buy a new washing machine after their old one broke down. They installed it, telling their children not to touch it. But the next morning the couple was awakened by their 4-year-old son who was crying. He was trying to tell them that his sister Kloe had locked herself in the machine and it was filling with water as it tumbled, USA Today reported.
