FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Three day care workers in Massachusetts have been fired, accused of hanging a toddler from a doorknob by his shirt and then taking photos and video.

Another worker at the KinderCare in Framingham told police Tuesday about the incident that occurred on October 10. Framingham Police Lieutenant Stephen Cronin tells The Boston Globe that the 20-month-old boy wasn't hurt. The state and police are investigating, and officials are looking to see if the photos or video were posted online.

Some parents tell WBZ-TV that the school never informed them of the ordeal and were shocked to hear of it.

KinderCare says in a statement that what happened was "completely inappropriate and out of line" with the standard of care they provide children in its facilities.
