(PIX11) – A couple decided to install a video camera just to make sure that their baby was safe while they were away — but what they saw when they watched the video was sickening.
The family nanny — who had already been working for 15 months — was recorded throwing their young son Olly around like a rag doll, according to The Daily Mail.
When the 18-month-old couldn’t fall asleep during afternoon nap time, video shows the nanny picking up his tiny body and slamming him down on the bed. In one instance she hits his head on the mobile above the crib.
They decided to install the cameras after mother Rowena, 39, began to worry about the nanny, Agatha, following a conversation with her mother.
“She told me she felt she had two faces — one when people were watching, and another when she thought she was alone,” Rowena told the Mail. “She said when I wasn’t there Agatha was much less interactive with Olly.”
After watching the video, the couple called police. The nanny was arrested and charged with cruelty to a person under 16 years.
However, she was found not guilty despite the video evidence. The couple has requested a review of the decision.
