3-Year-Old Found Dead in Back of Day Care Van

Orlando Police

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.

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

Temperatures in Orlando reached a high of 94 degrees on Monday, The Associated Press reported, though the temperature inside the vehicle could have easily been much higher. "They are living their worst nightmare", said the chief of police of the city, John Mina. The unidentified woman is cooperating with authorities and is "obviously extremely distraught", Mina said.

An initial investigation revealed that the day-care worker, who has not been identified by police, picked up Myles and other children Monday morning and drove them to another Little Miracles Academy, police said.

A spokesperson for the Department of Children and Families said they're working to shut the day care down.

"(We) said, 'Gone where?' And she pointed at the van", Livingston told WKMG-TV. The van was parked outside the centre the entire day, with Myles in it, police said. The fire department pronounced the 3-year-old dead at the scene, according to ABC.

The second location - Little Miracles Academy II - is at 2514 W. Colonial Dr. An average of 37 children die each year in hot cars, according to safety organization Kids and Cars.

"Anybody that knows me knows that I take care of my kids, if I ever open back up this won't happen again", Thornton said.

"DCF is pursuing every legal option available to cease operations by tomorrow at both of these facilities", he said.

State records dating to 2015 show that Little Miracles Academy has been cited for lax practices regarding personnel records, supervision and transportation, according to CNN. Additionally, earlier this year the daycare was cited for not recording a signed Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Requirements form as well as for leaving 1-year-old children unattended.

The report read, "The facility's log for children transported did not include the following required elements: [destination time, arrival time, destination location and departure location.]".
