A GoFundMe has been set up for a former Rochelle family after their 5-month-old baby died from injuries sustained at daycare.

This is so tragic. The Eklund family from Le Claire, Iowa (formerly of Rochelle, Illinois) is grieving the loss of baby Spencer after she was dropped at daycare in Iowa, hitting her head.

According to a source close to the family, Baby Spencer was dropped on her head by a daycare worker, who did not call 911. Instead, she put her down for a nap. The fall caused a crack in the baby's skull. The worker did admit to dropping the baby and an investigation is ongoing.

A GoFundMe has been set up to cover funeral and medical expenses and FMLA time.

Kindly join us in supporting Kyle & Amy Eklund as they grieve the unexpected loss of baby Spencer. On 2/5/20, 5-month-old Spencer became unresponsive and was flown to the University of Iowa's Stead Family Medical Center. She remained on life support until she passed away in the arms of Mommy and Daddy on 2/9/2020. Our hearts break for Amy, Kyle and big brother Chase. Any amount will help towards funeral and medical expenses along with immediate FMLA time. Thank you for your support. Please continue to lift them up. Spencer's story is on their FB pages. I know your messages mean the world to them!
