Two juvenile babysitters were arrested in MA after they allegedly put a baby into a refrigerator and posted a video of it on Snapchat.
The teens were arrested and charged Tuesday with child endangerment and assault and battery with a risky weapon, O'Connell told CNN.
They were arraigned Tuesday in Salem juvenile court and released to their parents. "I'm traumatized from that".
Prosecutors have not disclosed the ages of the suspects or the child they allegedly harmed, nor have they provided details on the extent of the victim's injuries.
Bonnie Brogna told NBC Boston that she was called into the Danvers Police Department when a video of her infant daughter being placed in a refrigerator while crying surfaced on Snapchat. The woman was reportedly informed of the alleged Snapchat video by police. "I think it was all foolishness, stupidity", the baby's mother said.
The child's mother spoke with WCVB and said she'd asked the teens - one of whom is her niece - to come over to her Danvers residence on Monday watch the baby so she could take a shower.
Police say the child wasn't in the refrigerator long and the baby is doing well. It's unclear how long the baby was inside.
The mother says she doesn't believe her niece was trying to abuse her daughter, but rather joking around.
The mother is now warning others to "be careful who you leave your children with". "You can't trust anyone, not even your own family".
