Cops: NY mom turned on dryer with her son inside

Posted: Updated:

GATES, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a western New York woman has been charged after police say she turned on a clothes dryer while her 2-year-old son was inside.

Police in the Rochester suburb of Gates tell local media that 17-year-old Jasmine Brown allowed her toddler to climb inside the dryer Saturday in the laundry room at St. Joseph's Villa, a group home with a program for young mothers.

Officials say the dryer was on for less than 30 seconds before another person intervened and removed the boy. An ambulance crew that checked out the child determined he didn't need to be taken to a hospital.

Police charged Brown with reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

She pleaded not guilty at her arraignment and is being held Tuesday in the Monroe County Jail on $50,000 bail.
