Calling agency ?

Calling agency ?

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

Doesn't make sense
Guest
Doesn't make sense

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.

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

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

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?

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

Why a bus station...
Guest
Why a bus station...

…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.

OMG

You MUST MUSt look into the nannys past before hiring!

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?

doctor
Guest

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.

Is he nuts?

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

Easy to say

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

Too far fetched !

Too far fetched !

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.

True story -

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 »

Sorry but

Sorry but

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 »

He should have called 911 and at least filed a report on this!
Guest
He should have called 911 and at least filed a report on this!

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.

The first reaction to hearing this is he should have called the police

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

Note To Readers

Note To Readers

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 »

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!

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.

Stop flipping out
Guest

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

Logical
Guest

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.

WHAT!!!
Guest

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

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

Nationality

Nationality

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?

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

Real reporting

Real reporting

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)

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.

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

This family needs to publish her name , so one will suffer

This family needs to publish her name , so one will suffer

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

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!

Just make out a police report asap!
Guest
Just make out a police report asap!

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!

Maybe the father didn’t call the police

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

JCM Babysitters

JCM Babysitters

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 »

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?
