Alabama Suspends License of Day Care After Death

November 12, 2013

Alabama state regulators have suspended the license of a day care center where a baby died in Marshall County.

WAAY-TV reports that the Alabama Department of Human Resources took the action against Sweet Pea Learning Academy and Daycare Center in Boaz.

A 4-month-old baby died at the center on Monday, and officials have yet to release a cause of death.

A suspension notice issued to the center says it had several violations, including placing the baby on his stomach and having items in the crib.

It also cites a failure to have a qualified person in charge on the day of the death; admitting an ill child; and making false statements to police and Human Resources.

Police initially said employees at the center were cooperating in the investigation.
