The video (posted below) shows a baby crying before being placed inside a refrigerator by one of the girls. "I don't want anyone near my child anymore". Moments later, they open the refrigerator and remove the baby.
The pair had been babysitting the infant when they chose to put the baby, who was crying the entire time, into the fridge.
The teenagers posted a video of the incident on Snapchat.
Police in Danvers, Massachusetts found nothing amusing about a baby put into a refrigerator.
Bonnie, a mother of two, asked her niece and a friend to watch her 7-month-old daughter for a few minutes Monday evening, so she could take a shower.
Despite the charges, the victim's mother maintained that her niece is a good kid that acted foolishly.
The baby was not injured in the incident and is home safe with its family. Other parts of the video show them putting the baby inside, laughing and joking all the while. I didn't know and they didn't tell me.
"I was horrified. I was in shock", the mother, who was not identified by name told WCVB. "I will no longer be leaving my children with my niece or her friends again ever in my life".
The girls, who are from the nearby Swampscott area, were arrested Tuesday after the video was reported to the Department of Children and Families (DCF).
