Which agency was she from? B” H the father woke up in time. He needs to file a police report, asap!!!!

January 17, 2019 1:44 pm

Drove “her” to the bus station middle of night, after what the father just witness in his Home, she s Evil. manipulated him, don’t he see it ??????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Insane!

Law enforcement!
January 15, 2019 12:28 am

The agency has a lot to lose on the legal side by taking responsibly so don’t expect them to! Law enforcement needs go be involved asap. It would-be selfish of this couple not to do so because their own child is safe!!

And if you find out the nationality, then what will that do? Will it be a reason to stereotype whatever nationality she was ? If she’s American, then what? If Puerto Rican, then what? If____, then what?

JCM Babysitters
January 14, 2019 11:46 pm

Many parents buy a year-round unlimited membership for their babysitter to take their baby or special child to the JCM. Problem is that the babysitters leave the kids strapped in their strollers several hours non-stop while the kids are awake (just like leaving you an adult handcuffed) while the babysitter is on their smartphone. This is an unacceptable behavior out in the public view where video surveillance is available. Another problem in the JCM is that kids climb on the low walls of the 3 floor high round hole that leads to the rock clock on the bottom and is… Read more »

Take care of your own children

We don’t have kids for others to raise them!!! The first three years is vital to the Brain development based on the attachment to the mother.

I can and WILL wake up and take care of my baby!

Night nurse NO WAY!!

I guess you missed the sarcasm. My bad.

Just posting this on social media even with pictures is a
January 14, 2019 8:33 pm

mistake and nowhere near enough. Make out a police report and seek legal counsel!

#33 is on the ball!!
January 14, 2019 8:24 pm

Raise your own children don’t let foreigners do it. If you can afford a nurse then hire a Jewish nurse

Maybe the father didn’t call the police
January 14, 2019 8:18 pm

Bec he was in a state of shock , or the nanny knows something that could get him trouble… you never know what was going on

Just make out a police report asap!
January 14, 2019 8:14 pm

Have someone check the baby monitor to see if it shows signs of tampering. Take the baby for a full & complete medical exam for bruising or anything. Even if she’s not prosecuted they’ll be a police complaint on record, so if anyone else is looking for a nanny
and checks out her background, they will hopefully find at least the complaint on record and be forewarned not to risk taking her!

January 14, 2019 8:05 pm

This evil creature needs to be put out of business one way or another! She is a murderer! You can not “stand idly by” while someone else’s baby’s blood is being spilled. Put her picture, name, agancy’s name all over the internet. This needs to go viral!

This family needs to publish her name , so one will suffer
January 14, 2019 7:23 pm

And open an investigation… problem that is now father words against her words and she already have an excuse – it’s not what u thought etc … no cameras
I would report to authorities to check on the agency and their staff

Put hidden cameras – never trust babysitters or live ins

Father in shock did what he couldve at the moment
January 14, 2019 6:43 pm

Mom could be having a hard time recuperating and do they temp hired a night nurse to help so parents could get some rest finally so they could function in the day. This is not uncommon.
Now looking back he can still go to the police etc…. He shared the story and wants everyone to know!!! He shared her pic and name I saw it on another post. Believe was in Lakewood
Parents beware!!!! Take J nanny or nurse that you know if possible

The agency will very likely cover this up,
January 14, 2019 6:35 pm

because it will reflect very poorly on them! He really needs to make a police report Yesterday!

Yes the stories are similar but not exact. In the child’s s case I believe the medical errors were accidental, but with this man and his uncle it was found to be intentional.

Real reporting
January 14, 2019 6:26 pm

This is classic of today’s news… Can be real, can be really fake, can be partially real… It doesn’t matter as long as it goes out and people have what to talk about. It’s erev Yud Shvat, seeing this article reminds me that I have a bigger job of me expected than worrying about news (even if it’s interesting)

Maybe covering up something
January 14, 2019 6:19 pm

Maybe he was afraid of the police discovering he’s on public assistance but can afford a private nurse

January 14, 2019 6:17 pm

From the details of the story, it seems like an eastern European culprit or someone from the Turcs & Caicos. Either way, a bus would likely be their preferred method of escape. What was this guy thinking?

January 14, 2019 5:31 pm

Somethings not kosher!?

January 14, 2019 4:59 pm

No offense but the end of your comment is extremely foolish there is nothing generous and menschlich about helping someone who just tried to suffocate your baby to death. Offering a ride to this person was not chessed it’s just wied & extremely ridiculous & doesn’t make sense. I have no idea why the father would offer her a ride to the bus and not call the police & make sure she was arrested for attempted murderer

January 14, 2019 4:58 pm

take care of your own babys dont have a nurse at home

January 14, 2019 4:51 pm

She needs to be arrested & put in prison for attempted murder of an infant. I don’t understand you people. And if she was arrested give an update. If she wasn’t arrested then there is something really wrong & the father should make sure everyone knows exactly who she is & her picture needs to be blasted out so this never happens again. I really don’t understand

scary photo

looks like something from a horror film.
goes with the story.

The nationality can tell alot …

January 14, 2019 4:11 pm

sounds like a made up whatsapp tale

Call the police
January 14, 2019 3:55 pm

Wth did he take her to the bus stop???

January 14, 2019 3:52 pm


agency will cover up ….

#15's story
January 14, 2019 3:50 pm

Sounds very much like the famous miracle story of the Schochet girl that had suffered severe burns…in the early 50’s.

January 14, 2019 3:40 pm

It was very logical what he did. His main concern would have been to distance his baby from the nurse so he drove her to the bus. Presumably he breathed a sigh of relief once he dropped her off. Only then could he think wheather what he did was correct or should he have just called the police/Hatzola etc. So don’t blame him for his initial reaction.

Stop flipping out
January 14, 2019 3:32 pm

It already happened! Why is everyone freaking out? If you REALLY care, you can call 911!

Dear Number 6
January 14, 2019 3:32 pm

What does it matter her nationality?
If she was a white or black woman, what happened was wrong. Nationality or race should never be taken into account for a wrong doing.

All that matters is that Baruch Hashem the father woke up in time, and that the baby will be okay.

Sounds just like crown heights
January 14, 2019 3:29 pm

Criminals love living here. They are given free range courtesy of the community (and the police).

Track her down immediately!
January 14, 2019 3:16 pm

U’ll likely be saving a lives!

Forget the police
January 14, 2019 2:44 pm

If I saw some one lay their hand on my kid,I would beat the living daylight out of them,and then call the cops saying that there’s a mess on the floor!

Note To Readers
January 14, 2019 2:34 pm

I think most commentators here are aware of what should be done but , in case it isn’t clear: when a hired nanny appears to be suffocating your child: 1) stop the suffocation. Use force if necessary. 2) if possible, detain the culprit. If you can’t let them go, yell at them that you are calling the police, anything to get them away from your family. 3) Do actually call the police and report this incident. It would seem the right thing to do. This guy really did his ‘chessed for the month’ by offering a lift to his child’s… Read more »

The first reaction to hearing this is he should have called the police
January 14, 2019 2:15 pm

In the moment he may have been in shock. Could’ve would’ve should’ve but didn’t.

He should have called 911 and at least filed a report on this!
January 14, 2019 2:04 pm

But it was probably the middle of the night, and if his wife was possibly not well, he was very likely exhausted and just not able to think clearly I would imagine.

Sorry but
January 14, 2019 2:02 pm

Very irresponsible if a nanny just tried to suffocate your baby & you don’t call the police on her & make sure she goes to prison. How do you trust the agency how do you know they won’t let her work for another family. She needs to be put in prison & never let out. Because if she’s crazy enough to do this once she will do it again. Thank God your baby was saved but now it’s your responsibility to make sure it doesn’t happen to another baby because if it does it’s on you for not making sure… Read more »

Many years ago a young man went to the Rebbe to ask a brocha for his uncle who was very sick in a Manhattan hospital. The Rebbe gave a brocha for a complete refua schleima and his health began steadily improving. Then unexpectedly, his uncle took a turn for the worse and he was told that the uncle wouldn’t likely survive. The nephew ran back to 770 and reported this startling & negative turn of events to the Rebbe׳s secretary, who gave the message over to the Rebbe. The Rebbe said run back to the hospital and make a big… Read more »

Too far fetched !
January 14, 2019 1:32 pm

So who looked after the 4 week old baby when he drove her to the station . I hope he made her a coffee before they left so she would not be thirsty on the way home.

Easy to say
January 14, 2019 1:31 pm

When you’re in a traumatic moment you don’t always react with logic and call the police. That could be one reason

Is he nuts?
January 14, 2019 1:24 pm

Someone just tried to Murder his child and he didn’t call the police?????

January 14, 2019 1:21 pm

Bring her to the doctor ASAP to get checked out and make sure there isn’t lasting damage.

Others should know – even though the baby BH was breathing you should always call hatzala or 911 right away in an incident like this.

Something doesn't add up
January 14, 2019 1:17 pm

They let her go and drove her to the bus??? Why didn’t they call the police if they thought it was attempted murder of their child?

January 14, 2019 1:16 pm

Hashem Yishmoer!
You MUST MUSt look into the nannys past before hiring!

Why a bus station...
January 14, 2019 1:04 pm

…and not the police station? You find someone trying to murder your baby and don’t get the police involved immediately?? Something sounds weird about that.

why not call the police?!
January 14, 2019 1:04 pm

She could be working in other homes not under the agency. You could save a life!

January 14, 2019 1:03 pm

What is her nationality?

We don't know all the details.
January 14, 2019 1:03 pm

Why 4-week baby would sleep in a separate from parents room? Where is the Mother of the baby? What we can learn in Avoidas H’ from this story?

two questions
January 14, 2019 12:56 pm

Why did he not call Hatzola to check child?
Why no camera?

January 14, 2019 12:28 pm

Why not call the police????????

Doesn't make sense
January 14, 2019 12:26 pm

Why didn’t he call the police? Right away?? Getting the agency who sent her to investigate- what are they going to do- ask her if she did it..? If so, she’ll be assigned to another infant.

Calling agency ?
January 14, 2019 12:16 pm

if i hire a temp agency and the employee pulls a gun at my kid do i call agency or 911 ? this story stinks
