Mother Of Toddler Who Died In Hot Car Says She Brought Him To Daycare

The mother of a 17-month-old child who was found dead inside of a hot car last week in Pembroke Pines told investigators she thought she had dropped her son off at day care. 

A Florida Department of Children and Families incident report says the boy was accidentally left in the car all day while his mother was working.

According to the report, the family had been staying with friends while their house was being tented, and the boy's mother was under a lot of stress.

The mother told authorities that she took a different route to work Friday and "believed she dropped him off that morning." 

The report claims that she said it was only after she learned her son never showed up for day care that she "began to realize what had occurred."

Police have not released the identity of the boy.
