3-year-old boy dies after being found inside hot car in Miami Gardens
Police say a 3-year-old boy has died after being left inside a hot car in Miami Gardens on Monday afternoon.
Officials found the boy unresponsive in a car at 3:47 pm. near the Lubavitch Education Center campus.
At the time, the heat index was 101 degrees and temperature was 92 degrees.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue transported the boy to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The Kids and Car Safety nonprofit says 11 children have died in hot cars nationwide this year. More than 1,000 children have died in hot cars since 1990.
The nonprofit recommends parents never leave their child alone in the car, place a memorable item or bag in the front seat and always check the backseat when leaving the car.
