A 17 month old child died last Thursday as the result of a tragic accident that occurred at her day care provider. The infant, Jaclyn Frank, was apparently strangled on a set of blinds at her Bothel day care facility. The King County Medical Examiner ruled the death an accident. The King County Sheriff’s Office is investigating. Jaclyn’s father, Larry Frank, described his daughter as “the sweetest, most innocent girl I’ve ever known.” For more information about this story, read the following links: Infant dies in day care tragedy; Infant Strangles on Day Care Blinds.
Although no criminal charges have been filed against the day care facility the Frank family may file a civil lawsuit for negligent supervision.
