A daycare worker in Texas slammed a toddler down just as the child’s mother was monitoring the CCTV in the daycare. She saw the woman pick up her child and slam the child into the floor.
A Texas daycare worker is facing felony charges after video surfaced this week showing her slam a small toddler on the ground.
Plano police took Jazmine Torres into custody Tuesday and charged her with child endangerment, reports Fox News.
A mother watching a live surveillance video of the Children’s Courtyard daycare noticed the worker toss her 18-month son face-first onto his mat. Parents quickly jumped to share the video over various social media platforms.
The daycare staff didn’t believe the mother at first when she told them what had happened, police said. They had to watch the video themselves.
The daycare announced they investigated the situation and subsequently fired Torres.
“Upon being made aware of this situation, we immediately notified the authorities and partnered with the state as well as conducted our own investigation,” the statement read. “Those involved are no longer employed.”
A hospital examined the child and didn’t find any injuries on him, police said.
The Children’s Courtyard didn’t return The DCNF’s request for comment.
