A couple in Lakewood, NJ, were horrified when they walked in on what appeared to be their nighttime nurse smothering their baby, TLS reported.
The story took place at 1 AM when the father of the child was awakened but what seemed to be muffled crying.
Upon entering the child’s room, the father was greeted by every parents’ nightmare: the nighttime nurse holding a pillow over the baby’s head, smothering the child’s cries.
The parents immediately pushed the nurse away from the baby and began yelling for an explanation.
The nurse responded “it’s not what it looks like” but did not elaborate.
The parents escorted the woman out of their home but did not contact the police. The woman was recommended by a reputable agency that hires out nannies.
The agency is currently investigating the situation.
