This is so disturbing!
A mom had to fire her babysitter after a video went viral that showed the sitter dousing her 7-month-old daughter with water at a water park.
The incident was apparently caught on camera by another concerned patron at the park, who posted it on Facebook in hopes of it reaching the mother of the child.
“You have got to be kidding me!!!!!” Desiree Howell wrote. “She is abusing this child. Baby is crying. And swallowing this water. Pray this baby won’t drown in her sleep!!! She has been yelling at her telling her to get over it. Its part of being a kid. Heard this baby is only 7 months old….AND NOT HERS!!!!! SHARE SHARE SHARE!!!!!”
Thankfully, the mother of the child, Brittany Dixson, came across the footage, quickly picked up her baby from the water park and fired the sitter.
The baby is reportedly fine, and Dixson told IndyStar that she truly doesn’t believe the babysitter was trying to be abusive.
“I know it was poor judgment and not cruel intention,” she said.
