MANCHESTER, N.H. — A New Hampshire father has been arrested after police said he put his infant daughter in a clothes dryer and turned it on.

Police have charged Michael Higgins, 34, with reckless conduct, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal threatening, according to information Manchester Police shared on Facebook.

Police said they responded to a home on Sept. 12 for a domestic incident. They said a man and woman had been arguing, but it did not turn physical. However, during the course of the investigation, the woman said Higgins had put their baby daughter into the clothes dryer on Sept. 8 and turned the machine on.

The mother said she quickly intervened and removed the baby from the appliance. The child did not appear to have any injuries, police said.

Higgins was arraigned on Monday and a judge held him without bail, The Associated Press reported.
