The child's mother, Stephanie Kidd, called the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office after an employee at Special Angels Outreach in Luling sent her a video showing her 1-year-old being dragged down the hall.
The owner, Lori Bercegeay, said her center is a resource for children with intellectual and developmental differences. She admitted she was the adult in the video, and said she should have had more patience.
“I was bringing him he was walking at first but he had just started walking and I guess I was going a little too fast for him or whatever, he went kind of to his knees and he was whining.”
The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services and the Department of Education are investigating the incident. The district attorney's office will also be involved.
