Day care worker charged after four toddlers suffer broken legs

https://www.aol.com/article/news/2019/08/03/day-care-worker-charged-after-four-toddlers-suffer-broken-legs/23786288/A Florida day care worker was charged with child neglect two months after four toddlers were found with leg fractures, the Northwest Florida Daily News reports.  Police apprehended Kids Discovery Learning Center center employee Christina Marie Curtis, of Fort Walton Beach, on July 20, following an investigation into an incident that occurred in May. According to Curtis’s arrest report, four children, ranging from 13 to 21 months old, were dropped off at the Valparaiso day care on the morning of May 20 and appeared fine. By the end of the day, however, all of them purportedly exhibited a change in behavior.  “Upon returning to pick them up in the afternoon, the children were showing signs of distress and could not stand or walk,” the report said. “The children were medically evaluated and each was diagnosed with fractures to their legs.” When questioned by police, Curtis “denied knowing how the injuries occurred and believed they could have happened either at home or in the playground,” the report said. Yet, interviews with the children’s parents and surveillance footage suggested otherwise.  One mother, whose son was among the injured, told the Daily News that she had told Curtis to keep her child indoors that day because he had been suffering from a rash.
