A Florida daycare is facing serious troubles after the employees had forgotten a 4-month-old baby inside a hot van causing her death.

Ewing's Love & Hope Preschool and Academy is responsible for the death of one infant who was found unresponsive, still strapped to her car seat after her mother's call to check on her. Police have arrested the van's driver and co-owner of the daycare Darryl Ewing, 56, and booked him into jail for child neglect.

"The suspect parked the van in front of the daycare and left the vehicle unattended with the victim still strapped in her car seat in the third row of the van," police stated. "Further investigative efforts revealed the suspect was responsible for maintaining a separate driver's log documenting all children that are placed onto the van."
