Police believe the child was there since 9 a.m., but that will not be confirmed until an autopsy is complete. The high temperature was reportedly about 93 degrees Fahrenheit (34 degrees Celsius) in Orlando on Monday.

"If you leave your child with someone, that person has the responsibility of taking care of them", Livingston, 71, told the Orlando Sentinel.

Mina said, "This is your worst nightmare come true".

The van is used by employees to transport children from one day care location to another - as well as pick them up and drop them off at their homes.

According to a statement from Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) Secretary Mike Carroll, the department is "pursuing every legal option available to cease operations.at both of these facilities". "I'm numb. I don't know how to feel", she told WKMG. The employee returned to the first location, parked the van and left around 9 a.m., forgetting that Myles was still in the back.

At least 31 other children in the US, including four in Florida, have died after being left in hot cars this year, WKMG-tv reports.

At 8:30 pm, OPD received a call about a child in a van in lot of Little Miracles Academy. The fire department pronounced the 3-year-old dead at the scene, according to ABC. "I loved Myles, I took care of Myles since he was a baby", she said.

Little Miracles Academy has been previously found not following rules created to protect children, according to records from the Florida Department of Children and Families reviewed by local media.

More than 100 people gathered to remember a 3-year-old Florida boy who was found dead in a van parked outside his day care center.

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.]".

The three workers present weren't monitoring children during naptime, attendance records weren't kept for file drills and medications weren't properly kept out of children's reach, the inspection report found.

"It's not right, it's not fair", she said.
