3-year-old boy left in Florida daycare van dies

Agency records show that during an inspection last month the Academy was found to have failed to have kept a log of pick-up and drop-off times, as well as details of where youngsters were being transported to.

An employee at a day care center in Florida is expected to face charges over the death of a three-year-old boy whose body was found in a van parked behind the center.

Orlando police tell local news outlets they were called to Little Miracles Academy on Monday night and found the child in the van.

"I just want justice for my baby", said Chiel Banks, the child's mother. When the van arrived at the destination, Myles never got out and spent the remainder of the day in the unused vehicle. "I took care of all of my kids, I did what I could do to provide for them and teach them everyday". After failing to receive an answer, the boy's grandmother called police and went to the day care herself and saw the boy in the van, the Sentinel said.

"If you leave your child with someone, that person has the responsibility of taking care of them", Livingston, 71, said.

She also contacted the center and an employee was sent outside to check the van.

Both centres have reportedly been closed for the time being.

Sheri Blanton with the Orange County Medical Examiner's office said that they are not permitted to release any information due to an active criminal investigation.

If an autopsy confirms Myles' death was heat-related, he would be the 32nd child to die in a hot auto in 2017, according to No Heat Stroke, a website that has tracked such deaths since 1998.

Charges are pending against the driver of the van, who has been cooperative with authorities, Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters during a news conference Tuesday.

If the autopsy confirmed that Miles died from being left in a hot vehicle, he will be the 32nd child to die that way so far in 2017, and the fifth in Florida.

His family, who attended a vigil for Myles, have called for the nursery to be shut down.
