Drunk Nanny Came From Care.com

Drunk Nanny Came From Care.com

A babysitter hired from an online sitting service needed some care of her own after staying with a young boy on Friday.

The Toms River mother left her son in the care of a nanny she hired from Care.com, and returned to find the woman drunk.

An Asbury Park Press story in USA Today reported that according to police, nanny Susan Porfido-Gibson was passed out drunk on the floor when the baby’s mother returned home at about 1:45 p.m. Meanwhile, the boy was crying, and his diaper was soiled.

According to WABC, the 50-year old Porfido-Gibson then woke up and ran out the door, stumbling and mumbling. A short time later police said she hit a fire hydrant and dislodged it from the ground. Police said they found three empty alcohol bottles in the car, and Porfido-Gibson’s blood alcohol reading was three times more than the legal limit.

Care.com issued a statement on the story. “We are disheartened by this news,” a spokeswoman told the New York Daily News. “As this is an active investigation we are working with local authorities and cannot comment further.”
