NEW YORK – New York City police have arrested the operator of an in-home day care following the death of an 11-month-old boy who apparently fell into a mop bucket.
Police say 28-year-old Krystal Khan is charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Authorities responded to a call of an unconscious child at her home in Queens on Monday.
Police say Khan told them she had stepped out of her living room briefly, and returned to find the child in the bucket.
The baby died at a hospital. An autopsy will be performed on Tuesday.
Police did not say whether Khan had legal representation. There was no answer at a telephone number listed at her home address.
A sign on the door of Khan's home reads: "Child care all day, every day."
