Child dies after being left in hot day care van in Florida
OAKLAND PARK, Fla. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 2-year-old child found dead inside transport van parked outside of a Florida day care center.
Broward Sheriff’s officials identified the boy as Noah Sneed.
Investigators say he was found inside the van around 3:30 p.m. Monday. He appeared to have been there all day as temperatures in South Florida hovered in the low 90s.
