(Wednesday morning 10/22) - I was in Bruce Park in Greenwich, CT with my sister and her two kids, 13 months and 4 years. I was playing with the four year old and we were checking out all aspects of the park (and what a great park for children indeed) when I noticed a child playing in the monkey bar area. There are several different play areas in this park and I was playing with my niece on one of the metal contraptions that has different levels and slides, ladders, bridges and monkey bars. A lot of the sides of this play area are open so I was keeping an eye on this kid. He had on blue sweats and a multi colored (looked like tye dye) shirt underneath a grey sweatshirt. It was a male child but his hair was quite long and was in ringlets like a honey brown color. He had giant blue eyes that you could see from a mile away.
My niece was running everywhere and then decided she wanted to do the monkey bars. So I was holding her and helping her across when this child (who was kind of following her at times) must have decided he too was ready for the monkey bars and ran to the edge and launched himself off. He fell face first into the mulch and began wailing at a feverish pitch. I put my niece down and walked over to him when a spanish lady ran over to him and began talking in spanish to him. I think she may have called him Evan or Nathan but it was hard to tell with the spanish. She was petite and very busty as evident by her skin tight jeans and extremely low cut shirt with massive cleavage bulging out. She hurried him away with her and went over to two other spanish looking girls, none of who had kids anywhere near them.
I was mortified that this was the child care giver to this sweet adorable toddler who was playing all by himself. This was on Wednesday morning and it was pretty early so the park wasn't TOO crowded but it is a huge park and I would hate to see anything happen to this child. This park is also relatively close to water and a child that young could easily run off, never to return. I was so mad at myself that I didn't go approach the nanny. I stewed about it, meant to do it, but just couldn't get my nerve up to confront her in front of her posse. I regret that so if you think you might know who this is PLEASE contact the parents and let them know. I didn't even know this site existed until I was talking to my sister about my experience (she was in the baby section of the park) and she told me I should try to contact the site. I really hope it works. Thanks so much.
