Children's Courtyard said in a statement that it's fired Torres and another employee. Instead of showing any sign of remorse or guilt, the day care worker then "covers the child up and then sits down and proceeds on with her day".
Sunday morning, the mother of child in Torres' care at the Children's Courtyard daycare posted a video from the facilities live video feed.
After laying the first child down, she was then seen lifting the boy up abruptly by the arms and swinging his feet back to plant him face down.
The incident happened on Friday, and the video has now been shared more than 800,000 times.
The mother of the boy in the video took him to the hospital and doctors found that he was not injured.
