Child Dies After Day Care Center Leaves Child in Unattended Vehicle

When a parent leaves his or her child at a day care center, it would be reasonable for the parent to expect that the child would be properly cared for and not placed in danger. The above You Tube video shows how tragedy can result from inattention and simple and careless mistakes made by day care and child care personnel in Florida and other states. It is vital for day care, child care, and school drivers of buses, vans, and vehicles to make sure that all children have properly exited the vehicle and that no child is left in an unattended vehicle. Leaving a child in an unattended vehicle can lead the hyperthermia, hypothermia, dehydration, suffocation, injury from automatic doors and windows, strangulation from seat belts, and other injuries and yes, in some cases, death.
