Ollie’s Story – Child Danger – Your washing machine!
Hi Im Tiffany Hebb.
A mother to two children, one in heaven and one here on earth.
Ollie and Poppy.
My sweet 21 month old, Ollie tragically left this earth 9 months ago. He climbed up and fell into my washing machine. I was at home and never heard a sound. He was such a smart and curious boy. I want to spend my life warning other mothers of this weird and-not common-danger. We did laundry together every day. He had a stool he would push up so he could reach to throw the clothes in. I was so happy to have Ollie help me, he was my little buddy. He loved it just as much as I did. I never, ever could have imagined something he loved so much could be such a danger and take his life.
My washing machine was a top loader. It never shut off when the lid was open and didn’t have a lock.
I want all to be aware of this danger.
Please share my tragedy to make EVERY-SINGLE-PARENT-AWARE.Buy a lock, get a new washer if you have to. Do whatever you need to do to make the laundry room a safe place in your home.

Please take the time to go read the full story of this precious boy and his family!
