Parents were shocked to see a video, showing a long time daycare worker severely abusing a young girl, according to police in Pennsylvania.

Upper Darby Police said that they have arrested 52-year-old Sarah Gable, after being accused of throwing the 4-year-old girl down a flight of stairs.

Gable has been charged with simple assault, harassment, and endangering the welfare of a child. She was booked into jail, and her bail has been set at $25,000.

According to the police investigation, Gable was an employee at the Childcare of the Future daycare center located in the 700 block of Secane Avenue.

The incident unfolded on Friday around 5:00 p.m., just 30 minutes after the owner of the daycare installed video cameras.

The 4-year-old girl appeared near the stairs before Gable picked her up and flung her down. As soon as the owner saw that Gable threw the child off the flight of stairs, she was confronted and police were called.

She was then fired from her job. Luckily, the girl was not seriously injured.
