Day care van driver arrested for leaving child in vehicle for hours

Day care van driver arrested for leaving child in vehicle for hours

Earlier Thursday, officials with the Department of Children and Families confirmed to News 6 that St. Charles was not approved as a driver on the facility's roster.

Florida authorities are temporarily shuttering two day care centers connected to the death of a 3-year-old-boy.

Charles, 51, was arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child, Orlando police announced on social media.

Myles was found unresponsive Monday night inside the vehicle in the parking lot of the Little Miracles Academy in Orlando, police said.

Just last month, Little Miracle's Academy was cited by the Florida Department of Children and Families for not properly logging the destination time, arrival time, destination location and departure location when children were being transported. St. Charles returned to the van and drove it to Little Miracles Academy I on Plymouth Avenue.

St. Charles then drove to the day care's other location, where she grabbed some belongings from the back of the van before going into work.

Police say the high temperature that day was in the low 90s.

Police say Saint Charles got out of the van twice without checking for Myles.

The comments follow reports that the North has mastered a technology needed to strike the United States with a nuclear missile. Benchmarks in Taiwan and New Zealand also declined. " North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States ".

About three hours later, St. Charles provided a sworn statement to Orlando Det.

"Based on the tragic circumstances of this case, both facilities have now been shut down". We are conducting a thorough investigation and are assisting law enforcement with their criminal investigation.

St. Charles picked up Myles Hill at his home Monday morning.

Audrey Thornton said Wednesday at a news conference at her attorney's office that she was extremely sorry about the death of Myles Hill. This facility was previously cited for not keeping proper paperwork.

Myles would have turned 4 on August 22, Mina said.

An autopsy is being conducted to determine Myles' cause of death, but Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters on Tuesday that it appears to be heat-related. In 2015, the facility failed to include mandatory reporting forms in its personnel files.

Myles remained in the van until he was found dead at 8:28 p.m. after Watts notified the day care's owner that he was missing, according to the affidavit.

In March 2017, the department found that staff were not "within sight and hearing" of the children during nap time, staff members failed to keep a current record of attendance on hand during a fire drill and staff failed to store medications "out of a child's reach".
