A man is behind bars, charged with attempted murder after he put his baby in a freezer.
It happened Saturday afternoon in Tacoma, Washington. KOMO-TV reports that the 25-year-old man placed the 6 week-old baby in the freezer because he wanted her to stop crying.
The girl's 22-year-old mother called police after she saw her boyfriend taking the infant out of the freezer. She was rushed to the hospital with a body temperature of just 84 degrees. However, authorities believe she will recover.
Police tell KOMO that the child was in the freezer for at least an hour.
