ORLANDO | A child of three years was found dead Monday night in a vehicle exposed to the sun in Orlando Florida.
The little boy, Myles Hill, would have been forgotten by his teachers for several hours, according to the first elements of the investigation.
“We pray for the family of Myles. They are living their worst nightmare,” said the chief of police of the city, John Mina.
The latter held a press conference on Tuesday to clarify the circumstances of the death of the child.
The small Myles would have remained at the back of the minibus the day care he was attending for nearly 12 hours.
“All the other children had been got out of the vehicle, but the educators do not realize that Myles was still inside.”
According to the chief of police, the driver of the pickup truck would be gone for several children at home to drive them to daycare and then would be left to park a few blocks away, without realizing that a child was still on board.
“One of the employees confessed in interrogation that no count of the children had been made Monday morning,” said John Mina.
This is the grand-mother of the toddler who has alerted the police Monday evening when Myles was not deposited with it as usual, CNN reported.
The teachers of the nursery have then checked the van and found the lifeless body of the child.
The driver of the vehicle could face charges, said Orlando police.
