Baby sitters accused of putting flea-infested kids in U-Haul

ELYRIA – Four children are in foster care and one was being treated for heat exhaustion at the hospital after city employees discovered them in the cargo area of a U-Haul.

Matthew Pearce and Nicholas Vealey, both full-time employees in the city’s Street Department, are credited with saving the lives of the five children whose caretakers have since been charged with child endangerment.

The children – ages 15, 6, 4, 3 and 2 – all were suffering from fleas, bedbugs, lice and some had ringworm. The 2-year-old was treated for heat exhaustion at University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center and then flown by LifeFlight to Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland where Capt. Chris Costantino said the child remained as of Thursday.

At the time of the incident, the children were in the care of Jamie Adkins and Brian Dekam.

This pair should be exterminated immediately. What kind of a system would place children in their care?

Ignorant damn low life trailer trash people need to be put in the back of a trailer and locked in until they can't breathe.
