5-Year-Old Boy Attacks Child Care Staff

According to the police report filed by the investigating Panama City, Florida officer, a 5-year-old boy attacked the staff at the child care facility he was attending. Among them was a pregnant instructor whom he hit in the belly, telling her he was going to "kill her baby".

He then attempted to run into the street to purposely get hit by a car, according to the staff.

The center's director told police the child had attacked nearly everyone on staff.

The staff was then forced to physically restrain the child, who then talked about getting a knife to kill everyone. The boy was never able to leave the facility and the staff isolated him to protect him and keep everyone else safe until the police arrived.

When Panama City police officers arrived at the scene they discovered the facility in shambles with overturned tables and equipment, papers "all over the place" and an "out of control" child.

Child Care Disabled ChildrenChild Care Centers Are Responsible For Complying With The ADA

The purpose of the ADA is "to provide a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities". For profit daycare centers are responsible for complying with Title III of the Act.

Child Car Seat Requirements

Florida law requires children under 5 years of age to be properly restrained no matter where they are seated in the vehicle.

Children through age 3 must be secured in a separate carrier (child safety seat) or in a vehicle manufacturer's integrated child safety seat.

For children ages 4 - 5, a separate carrier, an integrated child safety seat, or a safety belt may be used. If a safety belt does not fit the child correctly, a booster set should be used to correctly position the lap and shoulder belts once they outgrow forward facing child safety seats (generally at about 40 pounds and 4 years old).

Children from approximately 40-80 pounds and under 4'9" in height should ride in a booster seat.

Bug Spray Causes Evacuation of Orange County Child Care

An Orange County child care was evacuated by firefighters after someone set off 15 cans of bug spray defoggers inside the building. One unidentified person was taken to hospital with breathing problems.

In an attempt to rid the facility of bugs someone set off 15 cans of Raid Deep Concentration Roach foggers. According to the Orange County Fire Rescue report, the amount of defoggers used was three times the product recommendations.

It is a federal offense to use pesticides in any way other than what is specified on the label. Most of those foggers treat 3000-5000 cubic feet of area.
