State files injunction to shut down Speedway day care after baby dies
SPEEDWAY, Ind. – The Indiana Attorney General’s office has filed an injunction to close a Speedway day care where a baby girl was found unconscious in her car seat and later died.
Court documents explain 10-month-old Taliah Brigham’s death, saying while in her car seat at Miracles and Blessings Day Care, she “slipped and her airway was obstructed.”
The Division of Family Resources, Family and Social Services Administration blames the day care, saying “the child’s death was a result of inadequate supervision.”
The state not only pulled the day care’s voucher program, which helped pay the day care fees for parents, but because of the 10-month-old’s death, called the day care “an imminent danger to the health of a child.”
Social services officials have also asked the court for a permanent injunction to keep the day care from operating as a registered child care ministry.
Brigham’s death is still under investigation as investigators wait for final autopsy results. No one has been charged in the 10-month-old’s death.
