Child survives hanging at Uptown day care; provider flees, is caught


A south Minneapolis day-care worker was arrested Friday after allegedly hanging a 16-month-old boy in her charge. The child was rescued, but the day-care worker fled, initiating a chase that sent three people to the hospital and ended with passers-by and police preventing her from jumping off an overpass.

The toddler, who was enrolled at Uptown Daycare in the 2700 block of Humboldt Avenue S., in the East Isles neighborhood, was reportedly found hanging by a parent who was dropping off a child, police said. Police did not say in what part of the house the child was found.

The boy was taken to a hospital for observation, but was “doing fine,” Assistant Police Chief Kris Arneson said. She said the suspect is not the boy’s mother.
