The baby's cries prompted the Long Island parents to review their home surveillance camera, according to reports. 

Police said the footage showed Stacy Sakeran, 57, “forcefully moving the baby around and slapping her in the face."

“The baby cried and the parents woke up. I guess they were trying to do an investigation on their own part. They figured out the nanny was popping her and they confirmed it by video,” police told the Daily News.
