A child care provider reportedly accused of injuring a baby in her care had a hearing on Wednesday at Centralized Court at the Clearfield County Jail.
Laura Baldwin of Clearfield reportedly faces charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, endangering the welfare of children, and reckless endangerment.
The child’s mother reportedly testified and stated that on May 5, 2011, she dropped her 5 month old son and older daughter off at Baldwin’s. She stated that when she dropped her child off, there was nothing wrong with him and that he was buckled in his car seat.
The mother reportedly testified that she later received a call from Baldwin, who told her that her (the mother’s) child had dropped her son. She said Baldwin told her the boy was unresponsive. The mother said she left work and Baldwin’s. She said her son’s eyes had rolled back into his head and that his arm was limp. She said she asked Baldwin to go to the emergency room with her. She said her son was then airlifted to Pittsburgh, where he stayed for three to four days.
