Charges against the owner of a Casper, WY childcare facility were filed after an infant died in October last year. The child, Tyler Parker, was found by his mother with what appeared to be severe hypoxic, conisistent with suffocation. Sara Beth Whited, 48, faces one count of child endangerment.
The mother came to the facility and found her son blue and purple and cold. She tried to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but found his jaw basically locked, reports say. The child was transported to Wyoming Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Reports say the child was wrapped tightly in a blanket and that he was on his stomach. Reports say that according to regulations governing day care providers, infants can’t be placed on their stomachs to sleep. Reports also say that officials said the way the child was wrapped, he would have been unable to raise himself up on his hands. Investigators found other complaints of inadequate past safety breaches, according to reports.
