Chandler SWAT used to remove a child from home for a fever.

Police with guns drawn broke down the door of an Arizona home and ordered three children into the custody of the DCS because the parents had refused to take their son with a fever to the hospital.

Sarah Beck and Brooks Bryce brought their feverish 2-year-old son to a clinic in late February and were told he had a temperature of 105 and that he needed to go to the emergency room. By the time they got home, his fever had decreased to 102, and they decided not to. When the doctor found out the child had never made it to the hospital, the doctor called DCS who contacted the Chandler Police Department.

When police arrived, the parents wouldn't let them into the house. They reported that the child's temp had dropped to 100 and was sleeping in his father's arms.

At that point, officers, who said they had a warrant from DCS, broke down the door of the home, surveillance video showed.
