By the time the washer was installed, it was really late, so they decided not to wash any clothes until the next day. Instead, everyone went to bed. But the next morning, Lindsey and Alan woke up to the alarming sound of their four-year-old son's incessant crying. In between his sobbing, he kept trying to say something, but they were having a really rough time trying to understand their son, and they were confused by his behavior too.

Nightmares were common at his age, and he had woken up crying from a bad dream before, but this was different. Lindsey and Alan couldn't figure out what he was trying to tell them, but they knew something wasn't right. Then, out of nowhere, Alan leaped from the bed and ran out of the room, which left Lindsey very confused. Then she heard three shocking words that came out of her son's mouth. "Kloe. Inside. Washer."

Lindsey ran after her husband, who was heading to the basement. Once they made it to the laundry room, they saw something that made their hearts stop. Kloe, their 3-year-old daughter, was trapped inside the washer with the door locked. The kids had been playing with the washer, and accidentally activated the washer, so now, Kloe was tumbling inside, and the water was willing up fast. “She was screaming but you couldn’t hear her,” recalled Lindsey. There was no time to waste.

The McIvers pushed the stop button right away. Then, they unlocked the door and opened it, causing water to spill on the floor while the couple pulled their terrified daughter out of the washer. Her hair was a mess, her pajamas were wet, and she had a couple of bumps on her head, but all in all, she was okay. But this was a learning experience for Lindsey and Alan.

This incident was a wake up call for the McIvers. It made them see that regardless of what they told their kids, their curiosity would always win out in the end. “We are continually surprised at the new, inventive ways our kids come up with to try and die,” said Lindsey. “And this was definitely a new one.” To that end, the couple realized that they'd have to be more careful about what they brought into their home next time.
