    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.
