Washington mom rescues tot from washing machine
A Washington state woman used a wrench to break the window of a running washing machine and rescue her 5-year-old daughter at a Laundromat in Okanogan.
The Okanogan County sheriff's office says the girl either climbed in or was put in the washing machine Saturday night and it started running even though it had been marked "out of order."
The Wenatchee World reports (http://bit.ly/vwT6D3 ) the 29-year-old mother ran to her car, grabbed the wrench, smashed the washing machine door and pulled out her daughter.
The girl suffered a 10-inch cut on her back and was treated at a hospital in Omak.
