Insane: Mom Allegedly Takes 5-Year-Old Tanning, Faces Criminal Charges (Video)Danielle Sullivan
A New Jersey mom has been charged with child endangerment after police believe that she allowed her five-year-old to use a tanning bed and was burned.
The investigation began when police were called to the girl’s school because she was in “extreme pain from the burns.” The little girl told school officials that she got the burns when she went tanning with her mommy.
Mom Patricia Krentcil, 44, maintains that while her daughter did indeed accompany her to the tanning salon, she in no way was in any tanning bed. She says the girl sat in a room nearby waiting while Mom tanned. She claims her daughter got sunburned while gardening.
One thing is apparent though: Krentcil is possibly addicted to tanning. She is extremely tan. It’s possible the little girl wandered away when mom was tanning and touched something and burned herself, I guess.
I hope that’s what happened, and I hope it never happens again, because the alternative is disturbing.
Krentcil is set to appear in court to face second degree child endangerment charges which, she says, she will deny.
