Two year old boy is found dead in a day care center parked at 90 degrees outside a day care center in South Florida
- Rescuers were called to the scene outside of Ceressa & # 39; s Enrichment and Empowerment Academy in Oakland Park, Florida on Monday at 3.20 pm
- The unknown child had been in the van for an indefinite period of time
- Researchers said that warm weather may have played a role in the child's death
- Sheriff delegates said the child's parents were informed of his death
- No arrests were made Monday afternoon
A two-year-old boy was found dead Monday afternoon in the back of a daycare van when the authorities said the temperatures reached the low 90s.
Emergency services were called on site outside of Ceressa & Enrichment and Empowerment Academy in Oakland Park, Florida at around 3:20 PM Monday after nursery staff found the lifeless body of the toddler on the white Ford bus.
Investigators from the Broward County Sheriff office said the child had been taken to the daycare center in the van earlier in the day.
& # 39; What happened when they arrived here is being investigated, & # 39; said BSO spokesperson Keyla Concepcion WSVN. & # 39; You would think that any facility that deals with children – especially young children – would have some sort of checks and balances or some sort of system. Unfortunately, it's not the first time we've heard of a case like this. & # 39;

Rescuers were called to the scene outside of Ceressa & Enrichment and Empowerment Academy in Oakland Park, Florida on Monday at 3.20 pm, where a two-year-old boy died after being left in a hot van
Authorities said that the unidentified child had been in the daycare van for an indefinite period of time while the outside temperature during the day was in the low 90 degrees
News cameras captured images of the body of the deceased child covered with a yellow sail.
The news of the tragedy quickly spread throughout the area, causing horrible parents whose children go to daycare, run to the scene, and pick up their children to make sure they were safe.
& # 39; When I called, the young lady – the assistant director – told me: & # 39; Your kids are fine at the time, but you have to come and pick them up from another site, & # 39; & # 39; & # 39; Lavonya Roach told WSVN.
& # 39; Totally unacceptable. Death is never acceptable, especially with a minor, and I think it is because of lack of experience or balanced people who take care of the children. & # 39;
Investigators took the van into custody after investigating the scene
Authorities did not release the name of the driver of the van, but no arrests were made on Monday afternoon.
The incident is the last tragedy in which one or more children die after being left in hot vehicles by ignorant parents.
The resident of Phoeniex, Juan Rodriguez, pleaded not guilty of manslaughter and criminal negligent charges on Friday after he accidentally left his one-year-old twin Luna and Phoenix in his vehicle for eight hours at 108 degrees again.
& # 39; These tragedies continue to occur, so we expect – or hope – that facilities that deal with children have checks and balances or some sort of system to prevent these incidents, & # 39; said Concepcion.
