MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) — State 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.
Video aired by WSB-TV shows fists flying as adults battle each other, crashing into cribs and a mechanical swing.
The video shows a woman racing to rescue one toddler when the fight comes within inches of the child. Another toddler is seen wandering toward the combatants, eventually hiding behind a woman and clinging to her leg.
A state official said the video is a year old, but the agency that regulates daycares opened the probe this week after learning of its existence.
