Toddler with multiple bites sparks day care investigation

Sheriff’s detectives and child welfare authorities are investigating a Florida day care center after an 18-year-old boy was repeatedly bitten by another toddler.

Manatee Sheriff’s spokesman Dave Bristow said Wednesday that an employee at J’s Bright Learners day care center in Bradenton could face charges of child neglect.

The child’s mother, Amanda Beebe, said a day care worker said her little boy had been bitten once on August 26th by another child. She figured that happens with children. Then, three days later, they called her saying had been bitten again, many times, and that “it was bad.”

Beebe said she became hysterical when she saw her boy. He’s now recovering.

A woman answering the phone at the day care said no one there could comment.
