Because the employees of the daycare didn’t have sunscreens, they advised everyone to keep their clothes on at the waterpark where they would spend the day.

A horrified Oklahoman mother was livid when, picking up her two boys from day care, she found out that they were badly burned after spending a day in the sun.

“I dropped them off at Happiness Is a Learning Center at 9 a.m., and that day they were going to Splash Pad, a local water park,” said Shaunna Broaday to BuzzFeed.

“I got off work at 5 p.m. and went to pick them up, and they were clearly burned.

“[The employees] were actually making fun of my older son, because both boys got sunburns but he was being a ‘baby’ and crying about it.”

Because the employees of the daycare didn’t have sunscreens, they advised everyone to keep their clothes on at the waterpark where they would spend the day.

Shaunna’s boys didn’t listen.

“It was common sense that they shouldn’t have been out in the sun all day, even if they wore their clothes,” she said. “The heat index was 118 degrees in Vinita that day. The news was telling us not to be outside.”

When she called the hospital, all they said were that they couldn’t do anything until the burns blistered.

“They told us to go to the pharmacy, where we got Silvadene cream and pain meds, but nothing seemed to help. They were in pain all night.”

The following day, the boys were sent to the hospital where the doctors lanced the boils and blisters on their backs, applied cream, and sent them home with more pain medicine.
