Two preschool teachers have been arrested for child abuse after parents reported seeing them abuse three-year-old children in a live video feed from the classroom.
Horrified parents who tuned in to check on their children said they saw staff stand on one child’s hand and kneel another in the back, pushing his head back.
The alleged incident reportedly happened last week at Parker Chase Preschool in Roswell, Georgia.
Brant Duncan and Gloria Barghi had rushed to the school and demanded that the teachers be removed after seeing the footage. They also called the police along with a parent of the alleged victim.
Zeina Alostwani, 40, and Soriana Briceno, 19, were arrested after officers saw the clip.
The mother of one of the children told WSBTV: “It was a matter of seconds. I knew what we saw was intentional and I was sick to my stomach at that point.”
Mr Duncan said: “It doesn’t matter whose child it is. it’s a child You are helpless. You are defenseless.”
Numerous other complainants have made allegations since the arrests, and a fuller investigation is now under way.
A spokesman for Roswell Police told WSBTV they had “several weeks of video footage to go back and review to make sure there are no more instances of this type of behavior.”
School officials were quoted as saying: “While we are very grateful that the children are doing well, we take this matter seriously and our investigation is ongoing.
“We expect our employees to maintain the highest standards of care and any failure to do so will not be tolerated.”
