Mother puts baby in refrigerator after husband accidentally dials her number while trying to call his former wife

Baby in refrigerator  
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A woman was mad when her husband tried to call his former wife.

The woman learned of her husband's cheating ways when he accidentally dialed her number.

The woman decided to take her anger out on the baby.

The baby girl, who is only 4-months-old, came close to losing her life three times at the hands of her angry mother.

Her latest brush with death came on Saturday, when she nearly suffocated in an unplugged hot refrigerator.

The 38-year-old mother admitted to putting the baby into the refrigerator, but insisted that she never closed the door. She also said that she did not want to hurt her baby.

"I do not want to kill my baby. I only wanted to get her father’s attention," the mother said.

A neighbor found the baby in the refrigerator, which is in the shack near the couple’s home. The baby has reportedly been there at least 10 minutes.

The father was livid that his wife took out her frustrations on their innocent baby.

The father said that his wife had put their baby's life in danger twice before.

Once, when the child was only six-weeks-old, the mother held her upside down by the ankles, when she was angry.

The second time, was when the mother left her baby out in the cold. The 46-year-old father found his child in the carriage outside.

The couple has been married for over 10 years and have two sons and a daughter together.

The man also has four children from his first wife.

"Since my husband has been talking to his former wife things have been different. He does not care about our children anymore," the mother said.

The husband is looking to take legal actions against his wife for trying to harm their child as revenge to hurt him.

"What kind of mother does that to her own child?'' The father said.

“She is cruel. I have made mistakes, but she should not take her anger out on our daughter," he added.

Who doesn't like a stripper? Hot male and female strippers make a good living from their fans.

One male stripper in Wales, United Kingdom, who is known as stripper Fabio, has a lot of female fans. Women pay to see his sexy performances.

One night, when stripper Fabio was unable to attend a sold out performance, club owners at the Baltic Inn, scrambled to find someone to replace him.

They found Leon Zbudowskyj, 30, to be the replacement stripper for the female only party night.

Posters advertising the event with Fabio had been on display for weeks. Women paid £10 (about $16) to see Fabio.

When the rookie stripper took his place and came on stage dressed as a firefighter, women were not happy.

The women were very disappointed with his bad performance and booed him off the stage.

The angry stripper would not leave without a fight. He dove into the crowd and attacked the women who were booing him.

"He was just nasty, filthy, and had nothing, no six pack abs, and no dance routine. He was not shaved, he looked as though he came off the street,” one of the women in the audience said.

Police were called to get Zbudowskyj under control. He was arrested and charged with three counts of assault.

The club owners did not leave the women disappointed for long, as Stripper Fabio later appeared at the club to make it up to his fans.

She admitted that she had previously slept with a man named Sam for $60 and that she was looking for repeat business when she unknowingly contacted the deputy.

Warren was charged with prostitution. Bail was set at $1,000.
