Audioless surveillance footage of the daycare shows a typical squabble over a toy between two young boys - one black and one white.
As two black female daycare workers begin to approach the white child, they seem to say something as the boy covers his head with his hands, seemingly anticipating a physical correction.
One of the daycare workers, Tiana McElveen, then approaches the white child, first slapping him, then throwing him to the ground, and finally grabbing both of his arms as he cries on the ground and tosses him.
Afterward she gently pulls the black boy to the side and inspects his head for injuries.
McElveen was reported by a coworker to the daycare owner, who immediately fired the worker and notified authorities
McElveen has been charged with "unlawful conduct towards a child."
