Transcript for SWAT team called in to remove child with high fever in Arizona
It was the type of scene that looks more like police trying to take down a fugitive. Busting down the door guns drawn but no fugitive instead police are looking for a two year old. Believed to have an extremely high fever state representative Kelly Townsend says she's troubled by the video. She's played a big role in getting legislation passed requiring DCS to get a search warrant to remove children from their home. Any non emergency situation. But she says she never thought this would be the result. The doctor chose to use DCS. To remove the child and DCS chose to use of police and the police chose to use a swat team. And that is not the country I reckon. Townsend says this all started back in February when the parents took the two year old who isn't vaccinated to a natural path that doctor for a fever of about a 105. The doctor instructed the parents to take the infant to the emergency room. But after the doctor's visit the child's fever broke so they never went. After finding that out the doctor called DCS which then called Chandler police to check on the child. The father refused to let police into the home. Later that night cops come back with the search warrants. At that point coon now. Owns control over the child. And it seems like we had given that mount to the doctor and the parent don't want your house let's say or they risk. A swat team taking all of their children and potentially the newborn. Townsend says she can see both sides of the story. The concerned doctor and protective parents but she's questioning how it was done. And the amount of force used we need to admit that that's in this situation it was a mistake there are other situations where there is neglects. There is abuse and that's when you focus.
