OKANOGAN, Wash. (AP) -- A woman used a wrench to break the window of a running washing machine and rescue her 5-year-old daughter at a laundromat in Okanogan.

Sheriff's deputies say the girl either climbed in or was put in the washer Saturday night and it started running even though it had been marked "out of order."

Media reports said her mother ran to her car, grabbed the wrench, smashed the washing machine door and pulled out her daughter.

The girl was treated at a hospital in Omak for a 10-inch cut on her back.
