Daycare is a place where we trust licensed childcare providers with the tremendous responsibility of taking care of our kids.
Accidents happen all the time, but these are the people who are supposed to know what to do when there's an emergency.
Estania Eloi's 11-month-old son Nathaniel had a terrifying experience at Heart to Heart Learning Center in Belle Glade, Florida, when a bottle with boiling liquid fell on his face.
Instead of calling 9-1-1 or notifying Nathaniel's mother of the incident, the daycare workers lied to Eloi and covered the injured side of her baby's face.video-player-present
"When I got to the door, she told me, here here, go to the hospital, he has a fever. But I didn't get to see this side of his face," said Eloi. "I know it's an accident but you didn't try to help my child. He could've died at the school."
Nathaniel had to be airlifted to Jackson Memorial Burn Center in Miami, where he received emergency treatment for severe second-degree burns.video-player-present
Eloi is suing Heart to Heart Learning Center for their severe negligence.
"We have a defenseless child, who can't speak for himself to say this is what happened," said Eloi's lawyer. "We have to protect the little ones the most."
