Florida day care driver charged in boy's hot van death

Florida day care driver charged in boy's hot van death

The Florida Department of Children and Families issued an emergency suspension order for Little Miracles Academy.

Jessica Sims, a spokesman for the agency, said no children will be present or cared for at either facility starting Thursday and lasting until the state "determines it is safe for them to return". "I'm so sorry. I'm sorry for your loss and I don't want you all to be upset at me".

When she got there, five of the children got out, but not Myles.

"You know I loved all of my kids at both locations". She assumed all of the children had gone into Little Miracles and did not perform a headcount, St. Charles told police.

St. Charles was a child care personnel/school readiness employee at Little Miracles Academy in Orlando, officials with the state Department of Children and Families said. but she was not an "approved" driver.

According to Frady, Little Miracles had been cited in the past for not keeping proper paperwork.

A day-care worker checked the van, police said, and authorities received a call from the academy about an unresponsive child in a vehicle.

Audrey Thornton said Wednesday at a news conference at her attorney's office that she was extremely sorry about the death of Myles Hill. St. Charles allegedly told detectives that around 7:40 a.m. earlier that morning, she had picked up Myles from the apartment where he lived with his family, collected daycare payment from Myles' great grandmother and placed him on the van's rear bench seat.

A spokesperson with the Orlando Police Department said that police did not expect to file any charges or make any arrests on Wednesday, but did not comment on future charges.

Myles would have turned four on August 22, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said Tuesday.

Thirty-two children have died of heatstroke this year after being left in hot cars, according to a national database.

"Tragedies like this can be avoided", Mina said.

When police arrived at the school later on Monday night, they found the young boy dead in the van.

Although the employees at Little Miracles Academy told the family and relatives of Hill that he was not seen at the day care center for the whole day, they never told them that he was not in when his relatives called the employees to ask about the kid's uniform. Just this July, the transportation log failed to include information regarding destination, arrival times, and locations.

Nesmith said Thornton could not answer whether any changes were made at the facility after the violations were flagged.
