A SECOND young child has been left with shocking back wounds after another BITING attack at an Arizona nursery.
Furious mum Rocio Umsted revealed her daughter was bitten around eight times at the Sunrise Preschool in Maricopa.
The tearful toddler was left with several blotchy red marks on her back and the child's skin was reportedly broken in some places
“I was upset, and I get it, kids are going to be kids, but when I picked (sic) checked my daughter out she had about 8 bite marks all over her back…how can you justify this?” the mum wrote on Facebook.
"We pay good money to get our children taken care of. Moral of the story please be careful on where you leave your children for daycare."
The president of the nursery Dana Vela later said the toddler “was injured by another child very quickly and while the caregiver was changing a diaper.”
"This is not meant to excuse the incident but to explain what happened,” she wrote. "We can and will do better and this unfortunate matter has provided some hard-learned lessons.”
The child responsible for the biting has now been expelled, she added.
Yesterday we reported how another mum was left horrified after finding her 15-month-old daughter covered in blistering red bite marks after collecting her from a separate nursery.
Alice Bryant was left in tears when she found 25 marks on her daughter Rosalynn’s back – and hasn't been told the truth by staff or authorities about what went on.
She also shared the images on her Facebook page, explaining they happened within five days of her child starting at Creative Beginnings Daycare in Tucson.
Bryant filed a police report for negligence and notified the Department of Health, which handles daycare accreditation, but said after two months the incident was still under investigation.
She said: “No word and neither department contacted me with updates, and I signed up for victim notification. All of these bites happened in one day. Please share!”
According to Live5News, the Tucson Police Department said officers took an initial report and the Crime Scene Unit took photos on February 26, the day the incident happened.
She told Live5News: “At first, I was like ‘are those really bite marks?’ And then, my brain kinda stopped thinking and I started crying.
“There’s over 25 plus, it’s hard to tell. Twenty-five would be the minimum that the police officer and I discussed. It’s stomach-turning. It feels both angry and sad at the same time."
Police say no charges or arrests have been made as of yet.
Bryant, who is demanding answers on how the alleged bit marks happened, worries if no action is taken, the same thing could happen to someone else’s child.
She told Live5News: "The fact that nobody intervened in how many minutes, maybe they were left alone, maybe they just disregarded the cries, I don’t know.
"But it takes some time to do that kind of biting, and my daughter would have been very upset."
A woman who answered the phone at the daycare told KOLD 13 News that Bryant's claims were unsubstantiated and it would not be commenting further.
