Owner of day care where young child died holds news conference

Owner of day care where young child died holds news conference

A 3-year-old boy was found dead in the back of a day care center's van Monday after family members became concerned that the child was not dropped off at home that evening, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The boy's grandmother, who has custody, tried calling workers at the Little Miracles Academy in Orlando, but couldn't reach its owners, so she called police and visited the day care herself, Livingston said.

Police said the daycare worker admitted that a headcount of children had not been done.

Chief John Mina told Fox 35 that the child, identified as Miles, was found dead on the floor of the vehicle at night.

"This was an absolute tragedy that could have been prevented", Mina said.

According to The Miami Herald, Mina did not divulge what charges the day care employee could face, but did say they were being cooperative. "DCF child care licensing staff are conducting a thorough investigation and will also continue to coordinate with law enforcement as they investigate".

"I know it's not going to bring him back, but someone has to be held accountable", she said.

"One of the employees confessed in interrogation that no count of the children had been made Monday morning", said John Mina.

So far in 2017, 32 children have died from heatstroke after being left in hot cars, according to a national database. "I did what I could do to provide for them and teach them every day", said Thornton.

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.

Flowers create a makeshift memorial August 8, 2017, in Orlando, in front of a day-care center where a toddler was found dead. In July, records show the daycare was noted as being in non-compliance for failing to include the following information in their transportation log: "destination time, arrival time, destination location and departure location".

"He was always doing something", she said.

Some family members used the vigil as a time to put pressure on Orlando police investigators to make an arrest.
