CLIFTON HEIGHTS, PA — Police have arrested a daycare worker after she was caught on camera pushing a 4-year-old girl down a flight of stairs.

The incident happened Friday afternoon at the Child Care of the Future daycare, just minutes after a new surveillance camera had been installed.

A worker at the daycare was watching the camera’s live-feed when she witnessed 52-year-old Sarah Gable, a co-worker that has been at the center since June, assault the girl.

“Gable was seen struggling with the child prior to pushing her down the steps,” the arrest affidavit states. “After the child fell, Gable was observed grabbing her and continuing on.”

You can watch the video below, and the description above is pretty accurate. It was definitely intentional – as evident by the look on Gable’s face when she momentarily looks up at the camera.

Police were called and Gable, who has been working in the daycare industry for the last 25 years, was immediately fired.

Gable was taken into custody that same day on charges of simple assault, harassment that subjected another to physical contact and endangering the welfare of a child.…

Joel staircaseGRASS VALLEY, CA — A man in California returned home to find the body of his best friend crammed under a back porch staircase.

When Andrew Poni returned home Tuesday afternoon, his neighbor told him something had happened in his home, but she wasn’t sure what. Deciding to play it safe, Poni peered through the windows and immediately noticed something was wrong.

His keys were missing, as was his 100-pound pit bull. When he went inside he found that there was standing water on his kitchen floor. But that was nothing compared to what he found when he went out to the back porch.

There, crammed under the second step of the porch’s staircase, was the body of his best friend since they were kids. “Saw my best friend crunched into a ball the size of a cubic meter dude,” Ponti told reporter Nick Janes.

Grass Valley Police are calling the man’s death suspicious and have called in The Federal Bureau of Investigation to collect evidence and help process the scene.…

Rochelle SappORANGE CITY, IA – A daycare worker has been accused of killing a 3-year-old girl because the toddler would not remove her coat.

Autumn Elgersma died on Halloween, two days after being admitted to the hospital suffering from a head injury she received at her daycare. According to 33-year-old Rochelle Sapp, the owner and operator of the in-home daycare, Autumn had fallen down some stairs shortly after being dropped off Tuesday morning.

After receiving a call from Sapp about her daughter’s accident, Jennifer Elgersma took Autumn from Sapp’s home and rushed her to the hospital where doctors discovered the little girl had a fractured skull and brain trauma. When Sapp was presented with evidence that Autumn’s injuries were not consistent with a fall down down some stairs, Sapp admitted she’d thrown the girl to the floor after she refused to take off her coat.

Sapp was arrested and initially charged with willful injury and child endangerment resulting in serious bodily injury. Since Autumn died from the injuries inflicted on her by Sapp, those charges will be upgraded as soon as the girl’s autopsy is completed, according to Orange City Police Chief Jim Pottebaum.…

Lynne SpauldingSan Francisco, CA – A woman who went missing from her hospital room was found dead 17 days later in one of the hospital’s stairwells.

On September 19th, 57-year-old Lynne Spaulding was admitted to San Francisco General Hospital, apparently for complications from a bladder infection. Her family says she was frail and thin when admitted, and were worried about her condition. Hospital staff were supposedly checking on Spaulding every 15 minutes due to her “frail condition and confused mental state,” which sounds a bit more serious than a simple bladder infection. Although, some sources are saying the medication the hospital had her on was making her disoriented.

The hospital said they last saw Spaulding in her fifth floor room at 10:15 am on September 21st, and that her condition had improved. A nurse checked on her fifteen minutes later and she was gone. When her boyfriend and two friends came to visit Spaulding shortly after, they were told she’d gone missing. Her family filed a missing persons report after the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department and hospital staff conducted, what they believed to be, a thorough search of the hospital.…

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – A burglar was found dead inside a home on Thursday, after having fallen down a flight of stairs.

The home was empty and undergoing renovations when a painter arrived to work Thursday morning. Once inside he found broken glass and signs of a break-in.

The painter decided he would check out the vacant house by himself and see if he could find the person(s) responsible. Just kidding, this painter isn’t a moron. He immediately backed the hell out and called the homeowner, who then called 911.

Police arrived at the home shortly after and performed a sweep inside. There, at the foot of the basement stairs, they found the dead body of 52-year-old Robert Edward Powell.

Burglars often target vacant homes like this because often there are appliances, fixtures or copper to be had. This home did not have any appliances or fixtures, but it did have copper. This looks like the item Powell had been after as some of it was found in the dead man’s back pocket.…
