CRANFORD, N.J. — Two former workers at a New Jersey daycare are accused of making children fight each other and filming the altercations.

Investigators tell WCBS that Erica Kenny and Chanese White referenced the movie Fight Club while encouraging pre-schoolers and kindergartners to fight each other on the playground at Light Bridge Academy in Cranford, N.J.

Both are facing child abuse charges.

“About a dozen children, boys and girls between the ages 4 and 6, just fighting; throwing each other to the ground, hitting each other,” Union County Prosecutor Grace Park said.

Kenny allegedly sent videos of the fight over Snapchat, according to WCBS.

No serious injuries have been reported but the incidents are still under investigation.  Jaclyn Falzarano, the Daycare’s Vice President, said the two employees were immediately fired after the incident came to light.
