Two babysitters have been arrested after a shocking snapchat footage of them putting a baby in a fridge.

The incident which took place at around 4.30pm on Monday in Danvers, Massachusetts, USA led to the arrest of the girls.

The snapchat footage showed the juvenile girls where excited carrying the act. They picked up the crying baby from the floor and put in the fridge, before the door was slammed shut.

A girl is heard saying: “Bye!” as she leaves the child in the dark. See video:

It is unclear how long the child was left in the fridge. A further clip filmed shows the same girl rocking the baby in her arms and saying: “Hi baby. See, he’s okay!”

The child’s mother speaking about the incident said the babysitters are her niece and the niece’s friend. “I was horrified. I was in shock,” the mother said. “I’m traumatized from that. I don’t want anyone near my child anymore.”

She added: “I know she wouldn’t hurt my daughter and that wasn’t her intentions. I think it was all foolishness, stupidity. I will no longer be leaving my children with my niece or her friends again ever in my life.”
