Nursery suspected of drugging babies shut down

Authorities have permanently closed a private nursery where two babies were suspected of being drugged and fell into a coma for hours Wednesday.

 

On Feb 18, Vice chairman of People’s Committee of  Thuan giao district, Binh Duong  province said authorities in the southern province have permanently closed a private nursery where two babies were suspected of being drugged and fell into a coma for hours Wednesday.

 

They also fined 57-year-old Vo Thi Y , the owner of the nursery for running the nursery without a license.

 

After the parents of Nguyen Vu Yen Nhi and Ich Minh Duc, both 15 months old, found their babies in a coma after picking them up from the nursery Wednesday, police searched the school and seized sleeping pills found there.

Police said they found 16 types of medicine, including sleeping pills, at the nursery. The public is angry that the nursery teachers could have given the babies sleeping pills so as to make their childcare job easier.

 

However, the police said they had not found enough evidence to charge Vo Thi Y with drugging the babies.

 

The two babies had fallen ‘asleep’ for six hours at the hospital during which they could not be woken up.

 

Near the infamous nursery of Vo Thi Y, there are 10 others operating without license….
