TV Falls on 7-year-old Boy at Daycare

CORPUS CHRISTI - A 7-year-old boy is seriously injured this morning, after a tragic accident at his day care.

Teachers said the young boy wandered away from the group to pick out a movie, when a TV set fell on top of him. Children at the Mary Bethune day care, including the boy's brother, saw the whole thing.

Emergency crews rushed the boy to the hospital, in critical condition.

Now, state investigators are questioning the safety precautions of the day care.

They say just four months ago a child was injured, and the day care didn't report it.

Investigators aren't the only ones now concerned about the safety of the children.

"I've never been worried before, accidents happen," said one concerned parent. "But this, is serious."

If the state does find a violation, they won't notify the parents directly.

However, they will post the information on their website, which lists all the prior violations as well.
