Image shows Ohio day care worker dangling 5-year-old girl upside down

An Ohio day care worker charged with child endangerment for not stepping in when a 5-year-old girl was assaulted can be seen in a police-released photo holding the little girl upside-down by her ankles.

The disturbing image was shared by the Columbus Police Department following the Sept. 10 arrest of Worthington Learning Center workers Joshua Tennant, 27, and Emma Dietrich, 31.

“While we are protecting the identity of the 5yo victim we want to share with you the severity of what [the] little girl endured in a learning center,” the department tweeted, along with the image.

“Actions by educators who are now facing criminal charges.”

Tennant and Dietrich were busted after the video emerged of the pair standing by as older students bullied and assaulted the “frightened” girl on Aug. 13, police said.

The two admitted they refused to stop the attack as a twisted form of discipline, according to court documents cited by WCMH.

“In the video, the older students are grabbing, pulling, dragging, swinging and just bullying [the girl],” police said in an incident report.
