Family dog saves baby from abusive babysitter
For more than five months Alexis Khan worked as a babysitter for Benjamin and Hope Jordan, taking care of their seven-month-old son, Finn. For reasons unknown, she began to physically and emotionally abuse the baby, who naturally had no way to defend himself or inform his parents.
The parents suspected something was wrong when family dog, Killian, began to act aggressively towards the 22-year-old babysitter. Benjamin and Hope decided to hide an iPhone under the couch to record what happened when their son was left alone with Khan. The recording revealed the unthinkable: the babysitter was clearly verbally and physically abusing baby Finn.
The Jordans called the police immediately. Alexis Khan was sentenced to one to three years in jail and will never be able to work with children again. It's difficult to imagine what might have happened had this loyal dog not alerted the family to the situation. For Benjamin and Hope Jordan, Killian will always be a hero.
The parents hope this story will encourage others not to ignore signs of possible danger, even if the signs come from a family pet. Way to go, Killian!
