A nanny who was hired to care for four young children in a Los Angeles suburb was caught on camera abusing one-year-old twins. However, she was only caught after the twins’ older brother told his mom what he had seen and she then reviewed the footage from her nanny camera, ABC7 reports.
Dana Cash from Yucaipa, California was hired as a nanny by the unidentified mother who said she had carefully checked the woman’s references and even gave her a trial run, before hiring her. So she was shocked when her eight-year-old son told her that he saw the nanny abuse the one-year-old twins. The mother then looked back at the video footage from her nanny camera fro evidence.
The footage showed the nanny initially being nice to the children, but then she suddenly snapped, put her hand over the mouth of one of the twins and shaking her violently. The mother, who hadn’t noticed anything wrong with either of the twinss, was left devastated. And the thing is that Cash had a clean record, according to the website care.com. On reflection, however, the mother realized that there were some signs of trouble. She told ABC7:
They had been getting up at night, been crying more, you know, in the evening when we were with them, and were just more restless.
The child abuse caught on the camera could now provide evidence for a prosecution of the nanny. San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested her on October 2 on suspicion of child abuse and she is now out on bail. (Scroll down for the video.)
