SPRING VALLEY, NY - It's no secret finding good daycare can be tough, but let it be known that leaving your kid tied up with a smartphone is not an acceptable alternative.
Believe it or not, but Mery Quinde-Castro did that to her four-year-old son to a bush in Spring Valley, New York. The mother decided to do this while she was babysitting other children inside her home.
Officers arrested Quinde-Castro for child endangerment after neighbors reported seeing the boy out there for 45 minutes.
Neighbor Len Alvino said, "Befuddled why she would tie a child up to a tree almost like a dog."
Befuddles us too, but she does earn the honor of being our Dumbass of the Day.
