Video of daycare brawl surfaces, investigation opened

Posted: Updated:

Officials are investigating what led to a brawl that broke out in the baby room of a daycare southeast of Atlanta.

The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning launched the investigation Thursday, after surveillance video surfaced of the fight inside the McGarity School of Prep in McDonough.

The video, first aired by WSB-TV, shows fists flying and adults crashing into cribs. It shows a woman racing to rescue one toddler when the fight comes within inches of the child.

The fight reportedly stemmed from a confrontation over a child being suspended from the center. Charges against the child's parent were recently dismissed.

Even though the video is a year old, the Georgia state department that regulates daycares opened a probe this week after learning of its existence.

Spokesman Reg Griffin told FoxNews.com that regardless who the aggressor was, the situation appeared to be handled "horribly" by those involved.

He said the department will investigate the incident and determine the proper response. Options range from implementing technical assistance to revoking the daycare's license.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
