Greg and Jennifer Henderson of Lennon are reportedly seeking more than $25,000 in damages after they claim their son received injuries consistent with “shaken baby syndrome” while at Honey Bear Child Care in December 2011.
According to a lawsuit reportedly filed by the couple’s attorney, Michael T. Ratton, the Hendersons were contacted by the daycare around 11:30 a.m. on Dec. 19, 2011, and were told that their child was unresponsive and was being transported to Hurley Medical Center.
The suit reportedly alleges that Hurley officials found no outward physical signs of trauma on the child but he did suffer multiple hemorrhages and seizures consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
The parents reportedly claim in the suit that the child was in good health when he was taken to the daycare center around 6 a.m. that day. However, Jennifer Henderson said she was told by daycare workers that the child was acting extremely irritably when she called to check on the child around 8:30 a.m.
Workers reportedly told the mother they were able to calm the child down, the suit claims.
