Mom says child came home from daycare bruised

A Florida Department of Children and Families investigation is taking place after a mother says her child came home from daycare bruised and beaten.

Meredith Gilbert posted a photo of her daughter on her Facebook page and claims the girl was hit repeatedly by another classmate.

Gilbert says Bright Horizons in suburban Lake Worth never told her about the problem.

Bright Horizons says the teacher working at the time has been placed on leave.
