HOLIDAY, FL —  A Florida daycare worker is caught on camera kicking a sleeping toddler.

And she didn’t just do it once.

Pasco County deputies say surveillance video clearly shows Linda Klem kicking the one-year-old girl in the head while she was taking a nap then kicking her again in the bottom.


When the girl’s mother picked her up, she noticed bruises on her daughter’s face. That’s when she called the police and had them review the video.

Despite being caught on camera, Klem denies any of it even happened. She’s now charged with child abuse.
