Pennsylvania day care worker charged with pushing 4-year-old down stairs

A Pennsylvania daycare worker has been charged after a security camera captured her shoving a four-year-old down a flight of stairs.

In the video, a day care worker can be seen shoving the child in the back at the top of the stairs.

Police said as soon as the daycare owner found out about the incident, Gable was sacked from her job and police were called.

Police say workers at the day care had just installed a surveillance camera about a half-hour before the incident took place.

"Apparently for no reason she takes this child and just throws her down a set of steps", Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.

Shawayne Tavares is a caretaker at the daycare center in Clifton Heights, a suburb of Philadelphia.

Veterinarians remove almost 1000 coins from turtle's stomach
The endangered animal ate almost a thousand of them over the years after the money was thrown into her pool by wishful tourists. They spent seven hours helping "Om Sin", half of the time scooping out the coins - both local and foreign - from its stomach.

She said Gable had been working at the site since June 2015 and had passed all background checks. "Why would you push a child down the steps.' And the way she did it was just so carelessly as if she'd been doing it", Tavares said. She has since been released from jail on a $25,000 bail, the station reports. It just hurt me.

"I was so upset. We don't treat children here like that", Tavares told local ABC-owned station WPVI. "You don't put your hands on a child".

The little girl, who has not been identified, hurt her knee in the fall but returned to the facility on Monday.

The parents were notified of the incident via a letter, and Gable was immediately fired and arrested. Gable's husband told NBC10 Monday night the family has an attorney and he stands by his wife.

Gable has since been arrested and charged with simple assault, harassment, and endangering the welfare of a child.
