Katie's Kids 911 call released

Posted by Paige Bresky --email

DELRAY BEACH, FL (WFLX) --- The shocking audio of a 911 call was released today that shows what daycare workers reported after discovering a child had died inside the center's hot van.

A Katie's Kids employee had called 911, but it was too late.

Also today, the driver of the daycare van was arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter.

Amanda Inman, 31,  is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail  in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Delray Beach Police say Inman turned herself in Monday afternoon after a warrant for her arrest was issued on Friday.

Police say Inman drove 2-year-old Haile Brockington to Katie's Kids Day Care Center in Delray Beach August 5.

Investigators claim the woman then forgot about Haile,  even though the girl was  strapped into her car seat. 

Haile was in the van for as long as six hours with temperatures ranging well over 100 degrees, police said.

Since Haile's death, Katie's Kids has been under intense scrutiny. Last week, the Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County pulled more than half a million dollars in state funding.

But Haile's uncle, Darrell Bridgett,  says the family wants justice.

"I think some more people should be arrested not just her, because it's not only her fault. I think the daycare center needs to be held liable also," he said.
