  • CA toddler rescued from Washing Machine

    POMONA, California (AP) - A 2-year-old girl was in stable but
    guarded condition after being pulled from a locked, running washing
    machine, and the girl's mother remained in jail after allegedly
    placing her there, police said.
    "The infant's going to make it," police Sgt. A.C. Cox said
    Sunday.
    Erma Osborne, 35, of Pomona, was arrested for investigation of
    child endangerment and was being held on $100,000 bail.
    Officers were called to Lucy's Laundromat at 5:25 p.m. on
    Saturday after frantic efforts by the girl's mother and bystanders
    to unlock the door failed.
    Police had to smash the front window of the washer with a baton
    to rescue the girl, who was submerged in water.
    "I pulled my baton, and I did like a baseball swing and broke
    the glass," police Officer Willie Morataya told KABC-TV.
    The girl was taken to a hospital where she was initially listed
    in serious condition with cuts, scrapes, bruises. She had inhaled
    some water, Sgt. Matt Stone said.
    Surveillance camera footage showed that the woman placed her
    daughter in one washer, then removed her and placed her in a second
    front-loading washer, which turned on when she closed the door,
    Stone said.
    "I don't believe what the camera says," the girl's
    grandmother, Mary Osborne, told KCBS-TV
    Friends and neighbors expressed shock and disbelief.
    "She wouldn't do anything like that. That's not Erma,"
    neighbor John Herring told the TV station. "She's a nice, loving
    mother who takes care of her kids."
