A ten-day-old baby girl died in Oklahoma after she was placed in a washing machine for an entire spin cycle.
The child's mother Lyndsey Fiddler has been charged with second-degree manslaughter after her daughter was found in the machine along with a pile of laundry.
The death left many of the emergency crews and police who responded to the incident in tears, with a veteran police chief admitting it was the most tragic crime scene he had ever seen, The Daily Mail
A family member, Rhonda Coshatt, who also lived with Ms Fiddler, told police she saw Fiddler leave the living room with the baby saying she was going to feed her, according to a police search warrant.
A short time later, Ms Fiddler reportedly returned to the living room without the baby and passed out on a couch.
Ms Coshatt went looking for the baby and could not find her, the warrant stated.
Ms Coshatt then found the baby inside the washing machine after hearing loud, banging noises coming from the laundry.
Ms Coshatt told police Fiddler had "been up for three days using meth" and that she thought she smelt methamphetamine burning in a bathroom earlier in the day, the warrant stated.
Paramedics tried to revive the newborn baby after she was pulled out of the washing machine but she was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital.
Her two older children, aged four and three, were taken into care by social workers.
Ms Fiddler has previously been arrested for assault, driving without a licence and not having her two older children in car seats.
She was also arrested in April for taking drugs when she was four months pregnant
