1-Year-Old Dead After Being Left In Car In Miami-Dade

A 1-year-old boy is dead after being found inside of a car parked at a shopping plaza near Bird Road and 97th Avenue where witnesses said his mother works. 

Authorities say the mother reportedly went to work around 9 a.m. Wednesday, parked the car in the back and, at about 12:30 p.m., witnesses heard loud screams and commotion.

A pharmacist, who was working next door, called 911 when he saw what was happening.

Miami-Dade police say that the child was taken to a hospital, where he later died. 

It was a hot day Wednesday with temperatures in the mid-80s. Temperatures inside the car could’ve reached up to 100°. Police have not said how long the little boy was left in the car- nor if any charges will be filed. 

Witnesses said the mother was devastated and screaming. She said something along the lines of "because of work – this happened."

Miami-Dade Police will be continuing their investigation.
