Family Dog Stops Abusive Babysitter
Killian is a very special dog and will always have a special place in the hearts of the Jordan family in South Carolina. He helped Benjamin and Hope Jordan learn babysitter Alexis Khan was abusing their seven-month-old son Finn when he became aggressive towards her.
"About five months into her being our baby sitter, we started to notice that our dog was very protective of our son when she would come in the door," Benjamin Jordan told WCSC. "He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her."
The behavior was very abnormal for the dog. Benjamin said he is friendly dog and knew something was going on when he displayed unfriendly behavior towards the 22-year-old. Hope put an iPhone under the couch when they left their son in Khan’s care. What they caught was very disturbing:
"It started with cussing," Benjamin Jordan told WCSC. "Then you hear slap noises and his crying changes from a distress cry to a pain cry. I just wanted to reach through the audio tape, go back in time and just grab him up. To know that (for) five months I had handed my child to a monster, not knowing what was going on in my house for that day."
Perhaps most concerning, Benjamin Jordan told Fox News he heard what he thought was his son being shaken.
Khan pleaded guilty to assault and battery and will serve one-to-three years in prison. The state will also place her on the child abuse registry and she can no longer work with children.
As for Finn, the Jordans said he is doing just fine.
