Two teenage juveniles are facing serious charges after video posted on social media allegedly shows them placing a baby in a refrigerator and closing the door.

The girls both face charges of child endangerment and assault and battery with a unsafe weapon.

Their names are not being released because they are juveniles. "I'm traumatized from that".

Police were called Monday about an incident in Danvers, not far from Boston, Essex District Attorney spokesman Steve O'Connell told The Washington Post.

She added: "I know she wouldn't hurt my daughter and that wasn't her intentions. I think it was all foolishness, stupidity", the baby's mother said.

Within moments, they removed the baby unharmed.

When the eclipse begins, attendees can watch the event on the scoreboard and through telescopes set up with the solar protection. NEVER look at the eclipse with the naked eye, even at 93% coverage the Sun is still very bright and can cause eye damage.

"The two juvenile females were charged with child endangerment as a result of a video showing their involvement with a child being placed in a refrigerator", Ambrose wrote.

Police say the video shows the 7-month-old's babysitters, one of whom is the baby's cousin, put the girl in the refrigerator, close the door completely and laugh.

The Department of Children and Families says it is investigating the incident.

It's not clear how long the baby was inside. After the ordeal, the mother said she is not allowing her niece to babysit her daughter.

The mother is now warning others to "be careful who you leave your children with". "You can't trust anyone, not even your own family", the baby's mother said.
