The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office has concluded an investigation into the injury of an infant at a childcare center late last week.
Bethan Pringle, 23, was arrested on June 19 and charged with felony child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury.
According to a press release from the sheriff’s office, an 11-month-old boy at the Childcare Network daycare center in Sneads Ferry was transported to the hospital due to head trauma on June 10.
“The child was injured by being dropped,” said OCSO Col. Chris Thomas, and the sheriff’s office press release stated “The child’s injuries were from head trauma which resulted when the child was intentionally dropped by the suspect.”
Thomas said the matter was brought to the OCSO’s attention after an internal investigation by the Childcare Network.
“They uncovered enough information that they were concerned about it so they contacted law enforcement,” Thomas said.
The Daily News reported the infant was transported to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville and released on Thursday.
According to Thomas, the boy is expected to make a full recovery.
