The Orlando Police Department is trying to determine what charges a driver will face in connection with the death of a 3-year-old boy who was left almost 12 hours in a day-care van.
Police responded to a report that a child was left in a daycare van Little Miracles Academy on Monday night.
At about 9 a.m. Monday, the driver had picked up Myles and other kids at the center and drove them to another Little Miracles location.
The sweltering Florida heat reached a high of 94-degrees Fahrenheit in Orlando on Monday, while temperatures inside a vehicle can rise higher.
The Orlando Police Department (OPD) held a press conference to discuss the incident that Police Chief John Mina deemed to be a "tragedy".
The employee is very distraught and is cooperating with authorities, Mina said.
Town mayor killed as Philippines war on drugs escalates
Mayor of the Philippines' Ozamiz city Reynaldo Parojinog was shot dead in a police raid on July 30 for illegal drug trade . Relatives even said that Parojinog did not spare those he suspected to be involved in illegal drugs, including his kin.
Authorities said the Florida Department of Children and Families will conduct an institutional investigation. "I'm numb. I don't know how to feel", she told WKMG. Police then found Hill in the van, the chief said.
So far in 2017, 32 children have died from heatstroke after being left in hot cars, according to a national database. It just takes a minute and I know that we're all distracted with cellphones, and there's so many more distractions these days than there's ever been, but you've got to do something.
The owner of a Florida day care where a child was found dead in a parked van spoke publicly for the first time on Wednesday, tearfully pleading with the child's family for forgiveness. They said they'll give a statement later in the day. Other violations included not having a caretakers in sight when the children were napping and not keeping attendance records during a fire drill, the records say. The facility's log did not include elements such as arrival and departure times and destination locations, according to the report.
The boy was supposed to have been dropped off in the morning at another Little Miracles Academy day care center instead of the location he was taken to. "It would've been different if she had come out", Esters said.
Both centres have reportedly been closed for the time being.
