A babysitter from Florida tied crying one-month-old baby to ceiling fan for 26 hours

28 years old Norah Jackson from Orlando, Florida, was meant to take care a of the one-year-old baby. The parents of the baby said:

“We hired Norah Jackson on Craigslist. Nothing was suspicious at first site. Norah was like any other babysitter we have hired before. Me and my wife only wanted to take a day off. And now this happened… “

Parents of the one-month-old child contacted the Orlando Police Department when they arrived at their residence to find their baby had been tied and suspended from the ceiling fan.

“The babysitter claims the child was suspended only for a few minutes but video surveillance footage showed the one-month-old baby was suspended over 26 hours,” – Deputy Sheriff, Neil James, told reporters.

“We entered the house and our baby was spinning in circles, suspended with some rope to the ceiling fan. She had put the fan to maximum, there was vomit everywhere,” the mother told reporters in tears.

Although the child is currently under medical watch, doctors believe the baby will not suffer from any permanent damage.

Nora Jackson finally admitted that she was intoxicated and under the influence of crystal meth, alcohol and crack cocaine before she decided to suspend the one-month-old baby to the ceiling fan to stop him from crying.

Jackson also left the home during the night to attend a party elsewhere and lost the keys and address to the house where she had left the baby.

Orlando police later arrested Jackson at her home where she first denied being hired on Craigslist as a babysitter but later admitted to the whole story.

Jackson is now facing multiple accounts of child abuse and neglect and could face up to 15 years in jail if convicted.

    These parents go on Craigslist to get a baby sitter. People do more research to purchase a car. Yes we all as parents need a day of as they stated. But you get contact information from other employees, such as other family’s speak to them personally. Anyone can get on any website and portray or make a false employment record. Ok look on a web site call and let a total stranger enter your home and watch a child that can’t even communicate how the child was treated. I’m so glad this baby is ok. And to young to remember the experience. But I blame the parents for there neglect as a parent to have such little regard of the safety of there child.
