"On Monday evening, around 9:30 p.m., we were contacted by the Swampscott Police Department about a video that had surfaced showing two females placing an infant in a refrigerator", Ambrose said.

Police say the teens put a crying 7-month-old into a refrigerator, closed the door, laughed, and then posted video on Snapchat.

In one Snapchat video, the baby can be heard wailing while one girl places the infant horizontally on a refrigerator shelf, says "bye", and closes the door. The baby is screaming and crying out and the two ignore the child who is obviously cold and frightened.

The suspects were both charged with child endangerment and assault and battery by means of a risky weapon, according to Steve O'Connell, a spokesman for Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.

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

"They showed me the video and I was horrified", Brogna told NBC Boston.

Their names are not being released because they are juveniles.

"I'm traumatized from that", she said. I feel like they learned a lesson and would never do it again. "I want to let everyone know that I was not aware of the situation", the mother's child told WCVB.

"Be careful who you leave your children with", she cautioned. "You can't trust anyone, not even your own family", the baby's mother said.

The juveniles were babysitting for a Danvers family, said Stephen O'Connell, a spokesman for the Essex County district attorney's office.
