Babysitter arrested after child arrives at hospital unresponsive: police report
WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - A babysitter is facing charges after a child she was watching ended up with a brain injury.
Megan Carson, 30, was indicted for felonious assault and endangering children, according to Warren County court records.
Springboro police say Carson brought a 20-month-old girl to Cincinnati’s Children’s Liberty campus on April 3.
The police report shows Carson claimed she was taking care of two kids at her home and the children ran into each other.
Carson said the 20-month-old seemed fine at first, but later she started showing signs of a seizure, according to the police report.
The babysitter told officers she then called the child’s mom and took the girl to the hospital.
Staff at the hospital told police the 20-month-old arrived unresponsive with a swollen face and a brain injury, officers wrote in the report. The child remained at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for “several weeks in the intensive care unit,” Springboro police said.
In April, hospital staffers told police they didn’t think the little girl would survive her injuries, the police report explains.
Springboro police have not given us an update on the child’s condition.
Carson’s bond was set at $100,000 during a hearing Wednesday.
The judge ordered her to stay away from the victims as well.
