Parents Break Into Daycare After Baby Is Locked Inside Alone
Desperate parents broke into a daycare center in Texas when childminders forgot their 10-month-old son was still inside and locked up for the night.
Sharonda Ross, 30, said she went to pick up her son Jordan on Monday evening after she finished work to find Joann’s Day Care in Houston locked.
She raced home in the hope that her partner Lawrence Matthews had collected Jordan, but when the pair realized he was missing they broke into the center to find him alone and crying.
Joann’s Day Care shuts at 6pm, but Sheronda, a security worker, said there was a long-standing arrangement with the business that she would pick her up son up later as she finished work at 6pm.
When she arrived at 6.45pm on Monday night she saw the parking lot was empty, and began banging on the door before she realized there was no one inside.
The couple then broke a window to enter the building after hearing their son’s cries.
Joann Davis, owner of the business, said she was ‘deeply, terribly sorry’ that Jordan had been left on his own – but hasn’t sacked the employee who locked the building up while the baby was still inside.
She added the employee had locked up at 6.43pm, meaning Jordan had not been left on his own for long, and she has since introduced new policies to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
SMH! If the daycare worker only had one baby there…how did she manage to forget him?
