Update: Police have contacted the mother of a 1-year-old baby boy who was seen trapped inside a washing machine on a viral YouTube video.

The video was uploaded to YouTube where it garnered millions of hits.

The mother, Sakia David, 24, told NBC10 she left her son, Saimeir Bush, in the care of a babysitter earlier this month.

The babysitter, along with an acquaintance whom Sakia says she did not know, took Saimeir to the Federal Laundromat in Camden a couple of weeks ago.

Sakia told NBC10 had no idea what had happened to her son until she saw the video footage on the evening news. Sakia said she asked the babysitter about the incident but the babysitter denied that was Saimeir in the video.

Sakia said she believes the incident was an accident and that the unidentified male was playing with her son when he put Saimeir in the washer.

All the same, Sakia says she won’t use the unidentified baby sitter again.

“Nobody should ever put a child in a washing machine,” said Saimeir’s grandmother Doreen Bey.

The Prosecutor’s Office told NBC10 they have spoken with the babysitter and her male acquaintance but no one will be charged.

According to the Lucy Daniels Center, kids who cry out for attention usually suppress intense feelings of anxiety, depression, sadness and frustration.
