Teenage Caregivers Laugh, Film Themselves Beating 98-Year-Old Woman
Two teenage nurses laughed and filmed themselves as they beat a 98-year-old nursing home resident in St. Charles, Illinois.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Chemyra Barnett and Jacqueline Santos – both 18-years old – struck an elderly woman with dementia, took video of the attack, and shared the video with friends.
Both were charged "with one count of aggravated battery of a person older than 60... and one count of illegal video taping." They were released on a bond of $15,000 each.
Barnett and Santos are scheduled to appear in court March 27.
According to the Daily Mail, the two attackers have "been banned from having a cell phone or sharing the video."
