Firefighters use 'jaws of life' to free boy trapped in washing machine

Four-year-old Donovan Hasseman climbed into the washer and ended up becoming trapped with his back stuck up against the agitator.

Woman kills her baby in microwave

A woman accused of killing her month-old daughter in a microwave oven told her boyfriend that she killed the baby and that the girl would still be alive if he hadn't been out cheating, the boyfriend testified.

Terrell Talley said that he and China Arnold took the girl, Paris, to the hospital where she was pronounced dead in August 2005 and that Arnold told him she killed her baby. He said they had finished nearly a pint of alcohol they had bought after fighting over Talley's doubts that he fathered the infant.

Talley said his sister watched Arnold's children while the couple drove to a liquor store and went to a park where they drank and continued arguing. After arriving back at their apartment, Talley said he slapped Arnold and pushed her to the ground after she bit his lip.

Talley said Arnold later left the apartment to get cigarettes, passing out on a couch when she returned. He said he left the apartment and returned to find Arnold asleep on the couch with the baby lying at her feet. He also went to sleep.

After Arnold got up to get her sons ready for school, Talley said he saw a red mark on the baby's face and noticed she was stiff and cold. The couple took the baby to the hospital. » Full article here
