Snapchat video 
Two teenagers baby sitters have been arrested for putting a baby in a fridge. There was a shocking Snapchat footage that showed when they were laughing and putting the baby inside the fridge.

The unidentified teenage girls were arrested and charged with child endangerment and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, police confirmed Wednesday.

This incident took place at around 4.30pm on Monday in Danvers, Massachusetts, USA. The child’s mother told ABC affiliate WCVB that the two babysitters are her niece and the niece’s friend.

She said “I was horrified. I was in shock, I’m traumatized from that. I don’t want anyone near my child anymore.”

“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.”

In the video that was posted on snapchat, the crying 8-month baby can be seen picked up from the floor and put in the fridge. The baby continues to cry as the door to the fridge is closed.

A girl was heard saying: "Bye!" as she leaves the child, who is wearing just a nappy, in the cold and dark.

As the fridge was reopened the terrified baby screams as girls can be heard off camera laughing hysterically.It is unclear how long the child was left in the fridge but officials say the baby did not suffer any injuries.

A further clip filmed shows the same girl rocking the baby in her arms and saying: "Hi baby. See, he's okay!"
The teenagers who appeared in juvenile court on Tuesday were released to their parents.
