POTTSTOWN, Pa. — Nap time ended early for toddlers at an eastern Pennsylvania YWCA when a deer burst through a classroom window at the facility.

The Mercury reports it happened Monday afternoon at the Pottstown YWCA. No one was hurt in the incident but an animal control official says the animal later died from its injuries.

YWCA toddler center teacher Erin Merriam says the animal went through the window into the room she and eight toddlers were in. The children were all asleep when the incident occurred and were shuttled out of the room.

The facility’s executive director says the deer was trapped in the classroom for about 15 minutes before it broke through a second window to escape.

The students were sent home with family members and the classroom was closed.
