Saskia David, the mother of Samier Bush, the toddler who was videotaped being put into a commercial washing machine, told the Today Show she would press charges against the babysitter who was responsible for him at the time. “I just want to tell Sandra,” David told Ann Curry, “This is not over because everybody said on the news that I wasn’t pressing charges, and I am.”
The incident occurred on May 11, but was not widely reported until a surveillance video of the child being loaded into the machine went viral on the Internet earlier this week. The machine automatically locked and began to cycle but was disabled by a swift thinking employee of the laundromat. Initially, the people in the video were thought to be Samier’s parents, but yesterday, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office identified them as a babysitter and her male friend.
As the title of my blog suggests, Rookie Mommy Ramblings is just that. As a first time mom to a precocious toddler who also juggles a full-time role as a hard-working communications professional, sometimes I just need to ramble! At the same time, I know I'm not alone. I hope you can relate to my posts and also find worthy information on South Florida events for cool parents like you! Follow me here:
