Day Care Owner Says Police Say Caregiver Dropped Baby

There are new developments in the case of a Bryan baby whose parents say was critically injured at a local daycare.

Ronnie Hyde, the owner of Camelot Learning Center, tells News Three Bryan police have told him one of his caregivers has admitted to accidentally dropping 5-month-old Lincoln Shumbera.

Bryan police however say they will not confirm these developments because it's an ongoing investigation.

Hyde says the caregiver who started working at the day care this summer did not divulge the information before today. He says he's devastated.

Lincoln was air-lifted to Dell Children's Hospital in Austin Tuesday night for critical head injuries after his parents took him to the College Station Medical Center.

The baby's father says Lincoln was incoherent when he was picked up Tuesday afternoon from the Camelot Learning Center on Boonville Road in Bryan.

The parents also say doctors are encouraged by the improvements their son is making and that as of 11 this morning he was breathing on his own.

An account has been set up at Prosperity Bank to help with medical expenses for Lincoln Shumbera. You can go to any Prosperity Bank location to donate to the Lincoln Shumbera Recovery Fund.
