Daycare Closes After Severe Sunburns

An Oklahoma daycare center has shut down days after two children under its care were severely sunburned. A local mother said her two sons, ages 5 and 7, had to be hospitalized because of second- and third-degree burns sustained when employees let them play at a local water park without sunscreen. According to the mother, the daycare center said the boys wouldn’t keep their shirts on during the outing and they didn’t have sunscreen. She also said employees were laughing about the children crying in pain when she picked them up.
