A 6-month-old Kansas baby was left with brain bleeding after someone physically abused the little boy. The boy’s parents said it happened after he was dropped off at daycare.
FOX 4 reports that the parents of infant Glen Braun said they when brought their little boy to a home daycare in Shawnee on Thursday morning, he was healthy and content. When they picked him, however, he reportedly had a large red mark on the side of his face and vomit all over his clothing.
“It was really hard. The kids are my whole life. My family is my whole world,” Glen’s mother, Sarah Braun, told the outlet. “The daycare lady was holding Glen, and my son had puke all over himself and she said he has been throwing up. He threw up all over his Pack ‘n Play, all over another kid.”
Sarah said the red mark on his looked as if a hand had slapped her baby. When she inquired about it, the daycare owner “made excuses” and couldn’t explain what happened, according to Sarah.
The following morning, Sarah took the baby to Children’s Mercy Hospital after he vomited throughout the night. The worried mother said she was stunned when the doctor showed her Glen’s CT scan results.
“The head C.T. showed that he had a brain bleed. From there they told us there were signs of abuse. They got the police involved and child services. I was absolutely devastated. I mean he is 6 months old. I don`t know how anyone could ever hit him or do anything to him.”
After learning of the medical results, Kansas officials authorized and issued an emergency suspension of the daycare’s license, while authorities continue to investigate. Since the owner hasn’t been charged with a crime, her name is disclosed at the time.
Police plan to present evidence of abuse to the Johnson County District Attorney this week. The DA’s office will then decide if criminal charges will be filed in the case.
