    OR - Boy dies at sitter's, second fatality at house

    I don't usually bring over local news like this, but I have some serious questions! Here's the story:

    EUGENE, Ore. -- Two-year old Lincoln Weathers of Springfield was pronounced dead at the hospital after being rushed from a house where the sheriff's office thinks the boy choked on something.

    The house is the same place where a 2-year-old boy was injured in a fall and later died in July 2008 while being cared for in a daycare operation, the sheriff's office confirmed to KVAL News.

    Sheriff deputies said Weathers was being cared for by 29-year old Janna Bauman. In a 911 call Bauman reported that Weathers was choking.

    The incident is under investigation by the Lane County Sheriff's Office and the Medical Examiner's section of the District Attorney's office.
    <snipped> Much more at link.

    IIRC, licensed sitters must take safety classes, so why couldn't she help a choking child? And why didn't she have a phone to call 911???

    As for the previous child who died in her care, how can a child die from falling from a tricycle?

    This is bugging me...

    Two children die in one year?

    No..........even if coincidence, someone is not watching diligently enough.

    Those poor parents......

    I'm not getting how a small child receives severe injuries and blunt force trauma from falling off a small tricycle type toy.

    The Web site reviewchildcare.com says Baumann is certified in first aid and CPR. http://www.kval.com/news/25791374.html <snipped>

    This is the part that bugs me about the choking! I'm not certified in first aid and I know what to do! How often do kids die from choking these days, when someone is there watching them at all times? That's what I want to know!

    ITA! It makes it sound like he fell on sprinklers? And they didn't call for two hours after the accident? Did they call the mom?

    It is troubling.

    Usually quick action can save a child although it is not a guarantee. It is heartbreaking.

    I'd like to know what Conner's mom thinks of this second incident...(Conner is the first little boy who died..)

    I guess she couldn't find her phone?

    Was anything located in this latest child's airway?

    I don't know anything more. They did say LE is investigating...we'll see what happens.

    ETA: If I hear any local chit chat, I'll report on that also.

    Connor's death could be considered a horrible tragedy.
    I guess it could be possible that he fell off the mini trike
    and his body hit the ground hard enough to cause his
    liver to be severed.
    Maybe his body hit the sprinkler head.
    The thing that bothers me is the day care provider
    is trained in cpr and first aid.
    If you have kids at all, you know if there is a bad fall, you look
    for signs of sleepiness, not responding, wanting to sleep,
    acting in a different manner.
    And then Connor was grey and 'cold' when 911 was finally called.
    Maybe the day care provider let him take a nap.
    But, LE ruled it an accident.

    But, it is rare that another death has occurred.
    No wonder we are all thinking, what is going on there?

    I hope LE is throughly investigating
    this 'accident.'


    The second boy choked.
    It is possible he swallowed something food or otherwise and it became lodged in his throat.
    It just raises the hackles, all our senses go into overdrive.

    Hope more information comes out in the next few days.
    God has a plan to help bring justice to the world -- and his plan is us.

    Why could this woman not find her phone to call 911 ?

    She couldn't find her phone and had a neighbor call 911. Hours later, Conner was dead and Bauman was in shock

    I'm not sure if we are allowed to link to MySpace, but I do know we can mention it!

    If that is her and she signed on yesterday as "cheerful", that freaks me out!
