A New York City woman is looking for answers after her six-year-old son came home from school with two broken arms.
“It’s a horrible situation – me as a parent thinking that I can’t go to work because I don’t know if my son is safe,” Krystal Alejandro told Pix 11. “It’s just a horrible feeling to see the pain that he went through.”
Alejandro has now enlisted an attorney to find out what happened during the child’s afterschool program in Brooklyn’s P.S. 106 since the administration refuses to give her answers.
“The principal is pointing fingers at the after-school program, saying ‘well it’s not us, it’s not DOE’s problem, it’s the after-school’s program problem,’” attorney Marcel Florestal said. “Nobody wants to be accountable.”
Though the school has said it is launching an investigation, Florestal still plans to file a claim against the
city for more answers.
“The safety of students and staff is our top priority,” Department of Education spokesperson Miranda Barbo said. “We are treating this with the utmost seriousness.”
