A Daycare Teacher Tosses Around 2-yr Old Child, Sparks Controversy Over Child Abuse
Video from YTN :
The police are launching an investigation into an Incheon daycare center for reported child abuse at the hands of one of its teachers.
The 2-year old was dragged and then thrown on the floor.
We will hear more from reporter Woo Cheol-hee.
Child abuse was reported at the daycare, but when did the abuse occur?
The incident occurred two days ago, on the 17th.
It happened at a daycare center in Incheon’s Guwol neighborhood.
YTN has secured video footage of the events.
What you are seeing is from the daycare center’s classroom CCTV footage.
The teacher grabs the child, who was running around, raises [him] to eye-level and then throws [him] on the floor.
Only a few moments later, you can see another child being thrown onto the floor in the same way.
The child was picked up and thrown down five times, with such force as to cause [his] legs to flail about.
The other children, in shock, are seen with their eyes glued to the scene.
Yet the other teacher in the room doesn’t seem at all shook up, and continues on with her work.
The victims are two children, both of whom turned 2 this year.
The children are receiving medical treatment, and are also experiencing prolonged psychological trauma.
One of the victims’ injuries are so severe that it is too difficult to even stand up.
The teacher accused said she did it because the children were not sleeping, and kept crying during nap time.
The parents believe this is not a one-time event, and suspect the abuse has been going on for some time.
The teacher has since resigned from her position.
The teacher will be charged with child abuse, and the video footage will be evaluated as evidence.
Comments from Naver:
Oh my god please tell us the name of the daycare center!
I wanna slam her down on the floor like she did to them. The kids must’ve been so afraid.
It’d be better for that bitch to just not work than to be a daycare teacher … Tossing the kids around like that just cuz they weren’t taking a nap. Should their moms be sending them to daycare? Is all that she’ll do is quit her job? Arrest that bitch, arrest the bitch who was watching all of it happen next to her, and arrest the director too! There’s CCTV in the daycare, so it should be shared with everyone so the moms can always know what’s going on.
The other teacher didn’t mind what was going on so it doesn’t look like it was the first time. Really pissed off.
As the father of a 4-year old, I was shocked to see that video. How could you treat a child like that? If I was the victim’s father, I would kill her even if she were a police officer, the police commissioner, or even the president. Really, as a parent, could I really act reasonably? The fundamental laws should be changed. When cases like this are confirmed in a daycare center, the center should be forcibly closed, and the community should be informed who the director and all the teachers are. It should be stated clearly and implemented immediately that the director and employees of that daycare should not be allowed to open a new daycare center. If only the abusing teacher is punished, these kinds of things will continue to happen.
Watching that video… that woman acted like she thought she was in a blind spot where the CCTV couldn’t tape her, and I can’t stop thinking about… there might have been other children who were abused in the same way right there. ㅠㅠ The police should watch the other videos too. I can’t help it I’m completely shocked.
Child abuse? It’s not attempted murder?
Wow, I wanna slam that teacher down on the floor. Is that an adult or even a human being? If you hate hearing people cry then why are you a daycare teacher?
The only answer is to arrest her. Her only punishment is a slap on the wrist, so it’s bound to keep happening.. Right now other children somewhere are suffering the same kind of abuse.
That teacher who didn’t care about what was going on and just kept working should also be punished. Usually if there are two teachers, they can monitor each other, but maybe that was my understanding. The bystander who thinks this is a normal everyday thing should also be punished.
Incheon, Guwol-dong, Euddeum Daycare Center
What exactly do they look for when hiring daycare teachers? Crazy.
We have to raise the level of punishment for child abuse in Korea. And since there was CCTV, there should be a law that makes it so parents are able to see it. What a horrible person!
Let’s publish her personal information on Naver.
The doors of Euddeum Daycare in Guwol-dong Incheon should be closed, the parents shouldn’t keep quiet and should stay determined, even if they have to draw up a petition, until they make sure the director and all of the other psychos have their childcare licenses revoked.
Didn’t the other teacher just ignore this? The teacher had no qualms about abusing the kids because the other teachers ignore it and pretend it’s not happening! Ignoring the situation should also lead to serious punishment – I’m really pissed off!
I really have no words. I can’t believe my eyes.
Is that bitch who’s staying quiet a teacher or a cleaning lady? Arrest that bitch too for ignoring child abuse!
