According to KARE, Nataliia Karia of Minneapolis was arrested in November 2016 after authorities said she hanged a toddler in her care from a homemade noose in her basement. Karia fled after Joseph Sabir, the father of another child at the day care, rescued the toddler, who survived the incident, the station reported. She drove off in her minivan, running over and injuring two men before she tried to kill herself by jumping from a bridge, authorities said.
