Child found dead in van at day care, Orlando Police say


Myles Davis, 3, was found Monday night after being left in the hot vehicle for almost 12 hours.

Barbara Livingston, Myles' great aunt, told the Orlando Sentinel she was heartbroken and angry at his loss.

"I want to tell granny, I'm sorry. (Section 6.2, number 3) [SR]", the DCF report said. "If you have six kids get in the van, you make sure six kids get out of the van".

"I'm so sorry. I took care of my kids". Authorities are still demanding answers, but as of now, an Orlando, Fla., day care van driver will face criminal charges after a child was found dead inside the vehicle at the end of an extremely hot summer day.

A three-year-old Florida boy has died after being left for more than 11 hours in a nursery vehicle on a hot summer's day.

When Livingston asked, "Gone where?" she said the employee pointed to the van.

That employee has since been fired, Thornton said. The police began a missing child investigation.


Both centres have reportedly been closed for the time being. Records show they filed to open the day care in 2009.

Police believe that Miles death was heat related but are awaiting the autopsy.

"Myles would have turned 4 years old on August 22", Orlando Police Chief John Mina said at a news conference this morning.

At least 31 other children in the US, including four in Florida, have died after being left in hot cars this year, WKMG-tv reports.

The van is used by the day care centre to pick children up and drop them off at their homes.

His family, who attended a vigil for Myles, have called for the nursery to be shut down. The toddler was found unresponsive at about 8:30 p.m. after Orlando police received a 911 call about child neglect at Little Miracles Academy.

The teachers of the nursery have then checked the van and found the lifeless body of the child. According to the department, all child care personnel are required by law to report any "suspicions of child abuse, neglect or abandonment". The rule requires day care centers to maintain logs of the time children arrive, where they were supposed to be transported and what time they departed.
