Disturbing security footage shows the moment a Las Vegas daycare worker breaks the leg of a two-year-old boy, manhandling the child as other horrified toddlers watch.
Elicia Miller, 32, was charged with child abuse for the May 2021 altercation at Creme de la Creme daycare, which saw her pick up the unidentified child and slam him to the ground, grappling with him until his leg snaps. The video was first obtained by the 8 News I-Team.
Miller, however, will not serve jail time for the incident, after confessing and pleading guilty to attempted child abuse in June, receiving only probation, 50 hours of community service and an anger management class as a result.
Now, the child’s parents, who have elected to stay anonymous amid media coverage of the incident, are suing the child care staffer and daycare for negligence and abuse.
‘They know what pain looks like and sounds like, and he … he was in pain,’ the child’s father told local outlet KLAS, referring to the footage captured by a security camera at the Las Vegas daycare.
‘I’ve never heard him cry like that,’ he said, adding that the tot has struggled since the encounter with a surgery, having to relearn how to walk, PTSD and behavioral changes.
‘He would shriek in a pitch that would break your heart,’ the child’s mother said.
