According to WTVM, Zimmerman’s son, Slade, was shut inside a a dark, un-air-conditioned closet. He was strapped in a car seat that was not his own. 

“I followed her in and then she goes to (the) closet, opens the closet door, turns the light on and my son is sitting there strapped in a car seat that is not his and the first thing he says when he sees me is ‘Mama,’” Zimmerman told WTVM. “He could have overheated and died.”

According to Zimmerman, the day care worker insinuated that Slade had been put into the closet to sleep and that it might not have been the first time workers had done so.

"She's all, ‘Sometimes he doesn’t want to take a nap. Sometimes he doesn’t this or that,’” Zimmerman said. “That tells me sometimes this happens.”

Zimmerman plans to press charges against the worker and the owner of the day care.
