A woman who has worked for a family in Krasnoyarsk has been arrested for hitting a child she was babysitting.
The baby’s family hired the 55-year-old woman to take care of him during the day. According to the mother, she came home one day and saw the baby crying and laying face down in a rocking chair.
Their eldest son told them that the nanny had been maltreating the baby.
The parents wanted to catch the nanny in the act, so they installed surveillance cameras.
A few days later they reviewed the footage and saw the nanny beating their son’s head with her hand and kicking his back.
They immediately fired the woman and reported her to the police.
The woman has now been charged and face a fine of up to 40,000 rubles ($1300) or jail time of up to 3 months.
