In the video, a day care worker can be seen shoving the child in the back at the top of the stairs. Police said she will also likely be charged with reckless endangerment.
A camera installed 30 minutes before the incident reportedly captured footage of Sarah Gable, 52, of Folcroft, whom police say pushed the child down the steps at around 5:15 p.m. Friday at Childcare of the Future in Primos, WPVI reported.
