Edel Sum, the owner / operator of a Round Rock, Texas day care center in her home, was arrested for child endangerment. Apparently, Ms. Sum left her home and 4 children under the age of 2. The children were left in the home alone with absolutely no parental supervision While she was out, she was involved in an automobile accident. She then informed the police officer that she needed to go home in order to take care of the children. A neighbor was able to get into the home to find the children in their play pens.
The children were not harmed by the negligence and lack of common sense of Ms. Sum but they certainly could have been seriously harmed and could have even died from a multitude of causes without any adult supervision. There are many fine day care centers in Texas and across the nation. Then again, there are other day care centers that leave children unattended or fail to otherwise supervise the children to prevent serious personal injuries.
