Daycare worker fired after abuse allegations

MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas daycare worker has been fired following allegations of abuse.

A former employee of Guiding Light Child care in Mineola recorded video of an incident, where the worker in question allegedly mistreated a 5-year-old.

Now, the child's mother says she wants the daycare worker to be held responsible.

She says what happens in the video to her 5-year-old son, Aiden, still is still almost too hard to watch.

As you can see in the video, the daycare worker then throws Aiden onto a table.

Rebecca says she filed a report Thursday morning.

Mineola Police confirmed they are investigating allegations of child endangerment.

Thursday afternoon, police were at the daycare trying to collect more surveillance footage.

The worker in the video has not been charged criminally.

The employee who captured the surveillance video on her cell phone says she was terminated last Friday after posting status updates about the alleged abuse on Facebook.
