A seven-year old boy remains in critical condition Friday after a television fell on him at a local day care facility Thursday afternoon. That young man has been identified as Jordan Arredondo.
The incident took place at the Mary McCleod Bethune Day Nursery, and on Friday state investigators were on the scene to investigate the incident.
Jordan was said to be in the gym with his classmates on Thursday, where they were all told to sit and watch a movie; however, officials said that Jordan decided to run up to the television and push it. That push caused the TV set to fall on top of him.
In November of last year, the administration at the Bethune Day Nursery was told by the state that it did not use good judgement in not reporting an incident within 48 hours, where a child had fractured an arm. In another incident in July of last year, the state found that staff had bandaged a child's cut and then later in the day, the parent showed up and had to take the child to the emergency room because stitches were actually needed.
There were a handful of other incidents over the past two years. There's no timetable for the state investigation to wrap up, but when it does, if there is any wrongdoing found, it will be revealed online just like the other cases before it.

The daycare was not under any kind of enforcement action by the state before Thursday's incident.
