Phoenix, AZ–‘Oh my gaaaaawd honey! Come look! Little Junior crawled into the clothes dryer. Isn’t that cuuuuuuute?’ ‘OMGZ! You’re right! He’s making funny faces tooooo! That’s just too adorable, let me grab my camera! Maybe we could send it in to America’s Funniest Home Videos!’ *sound of shuffling feet. dryer door shuts. a click. tumble, bounce. scream.* Ut-oh!
That was pretty much how the scene unfolded Wednesday night in the home where Jose Rocha, his girlfriend, and his 1-year-old child reside.
Witnesses in the home told police that the toddler crawled into the clothes dryer and started making funny faces. Everyone was so amused, the child’s mother decided to grab her camera and take a quick pic. After the child’s mother left the room, she heard the dryer start and her son scream. Other witnesses at the home say it sounded like a ’10-pound sack of potatoes bouncing around in there.’ It is reported that the child was in the dryer for approximately one minute. Creating some great memories for the kid, dad?
When police arrived at the home, Rocha wasn’t there. Little coward ran out the door when family members called police. Officers returned to the home a second time, after Rocha returned. He told police that he did have the kid in the dryer, but he didn’t turn it on…he held on to the kid and turned the tumbler by hand. Eh…wrong answer. The tumbler can’t be turned by hand. Rocha, 19, was arrested on two outstanding warrants and booked into jail on suspicion of child abuse.
The toddler received some bruises to his back and was treated at the scene. Family members say the kid is doing just fine.
