We’ve had enough posts about various failures at the Mother of the Year title, here’s a Day Care operator who entered a client’s kid in the Darwin Award finals without authorization:
Carol Cardillo, of Edgewood Road, was arrested Thursday and charged with second-degree manslaughter, second-degree reckless endangerment and risk of injury to a minor in the death of Adam V. Seagull. Originally thought to be a result of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, an autopsy and toxicological tests showed the infant, who lived in Shelton, had high levels of Benadryl in his system.
Cardillo called 911 on March 22 around 3 p.m. to report that the infant was unresponsive. She told police Seagull had been given a bottle around noon and then put down for a nap. When she went to check on him, according to police, she could not wake him up.
There were seven other children at the day care center in Cardillo’s Edgewood Road home, which she ran — without a license — for 11 years. The center was shut down that day, police said.
Naturally, in Connecticut, where guns are as outlawed as red-diaper-baby Governor Dannel Malloy has been able to make them, the newspaper seems to think the cause of this lady killing this kid is the fact that she didn’t have a license to kill kids run a day care from the State.
(By the way, “Dannel”? His hippy-dippy parents were too baked to spell “Daniel”). Also, this is the second loss to the Seagull family; Adam’s older brother Jonathan Livingston was last seen in a dirty white van with two suspicous glowing white seagulls at the wheel.
