Daycare closed following hot car death

Louisville, KY (WAVE) The driver of a Louisville, Kentucky daycare vehicle admitted in an interview with investigators to "having forgotten" about the child who died in the facility’s care.

According to a statement from the Kentucky’s Cabinet For Health And Family Services, "two school-aged children observed an unresponsive 2-year-old in the backseat of the vehicle they were boarding while being picked up from the elementary school by a center staff driver … The school children alerted the staff driver to the presence of the unresponsive child. Two adults present at the elementary school attempted to resuscitate the 2-year-old but they were not successful. The child was found to be deceased. The staff driver verbally acknowledged having forgotten about the 2-year-old."

Earlier Wednesday the Kentucky Office of Inspector General issued an emergency license suspension at Lil’ Kings and Queens Learning Academy, where 2-year-old Lavontae Swain died of heat stroke on Monday.
