A day care in Gaffney, South Carolina is being investigated after a teenager shared a photo of her foot inside the mouth of a 7-month-old baby.
The incident happened last week when the 15-year-old was visiting her friend at the home in which the child was being cared for, Pix11 reports. The teenager, who is not related to the child, took the photo and shared it on the popular photo and video app, Snapchat. After friends and parents in the neighborhood saw the photo, they reported the teen to police.
No one was arrested in the incident, but the South Carolina Department of Social Services launched an investigation after neighbors claimed the homeowner was running an illegal day care. Currently, the home isn’t licensed with the state to operate as a day care facility.
Friends of the child’s mother told reporters someone has to pay the consequences for the senseless act.
Bridgette Dawkins, who is friends with the mother of the baby in the photo, told the station: ‘It’s just disgusting really. I never thought somebody would do that to a child.
‘Somebody should be apologizing and there should be something done about it.
‘It don’t need to be pushed under the rug; she needs to be punished.’
Gaffney Police have reportedly referred the case to the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice.
