Parents nationwide are shocked and outraged by video footage of a violent incident at a local daycare that resulted in a young girl being sent to the hospital for care.
Alarming footage has been released showing a daycare worker physically assaulting a three-year-old girl, resulting in a hideous gash on the child’s forehead that required seven stitches.
In the video, the teacher at Brighter Day Care and Preschool in Missouri can be seen grabbing the child’s hand and throwing her to the floor. As the child falls, her head forcibly hits a cabinet.
An ambulance was called, however, a letter of explanation sent to the parents simply claimed she fell. The footage tells another story entirely, and the family quickly hired legal representation after seeing it.
The family’s attorney, Jennifer Hudson, said, “In no world did this family have any idea that what was called a fall was actually an assault until they came to see that video.”
While the teacher was eventually fired, she continued working at the facility for an additional five days after the incident because the daycare director didn’t immediately review the surveillance footage.
