TACOMA, Wash. (KOIN) -- Authorities near Tacoma, Wash., say a 25-year-old father put his six-week-old daughter in a freezer for about an hour because she was crying.
The man was arrested Saturday afternoon in the town of Roy, Wash. He will be charged with Attempted Murder.
The detective assigned to the case said the baby's mother called 911 when she came home and saw the dad taking their child out of the freezer.
"It appears he was alone with the baby, probably got frustrated, the baby was crying," Detective Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff's Office told KIRO-TV in Seattle. "For some reason he decided to stick the baby in the freezer -- which is probably the worst thing you could possibly do..."
The girl was taken to the hospital with a body temperature of just 84 degrees.
Doctors expect her to recover.
