Daycare Worker Accused Of Abusing Child

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A West Palm Beach daycare worker has been released from jail after police say she abused a child under her care.

Police say 38-year-old Zully Ruiz-Yapan of Greenacres was seen on video surveillance abusing a 2-year-old at the Apostolic Child Development Center.

Authorities launched an investigation after another toddler was hospitalized with injuries apparently suffered after an object was shoved in the child’s mouth.

Ruiz-Yapan has posted a $6,000 bond. Jail records didn’t say if she had an attorney.
