Tamarac, FL (WSVN/CNN) - An investigation is underway in Florida, after a 4-year-old boy was found unconscious in his daycare provider's van.
That child died a short time later at a hospital.
"I think it's just extremely tragic you know that, you know, I'm sorry. That something like that can happen to a child," said Miyoshi Agnew.
Agnew was clearly upset after trying to save a boy from dying.
"I felt his neck and I'm like no he doesn't have a pulse," she said.
Agnew says she found the boy in the parking lot of her condo complex. He was inside his daycare van. She says she tried CPR, along with a neighbor.
"He was just laying there just completely out, completely out. His skin felt a little, you know a little slimy like he was hot, but it was hot. It was in the 90s so I was just thinking that he was hot and he had a whole bunch of saliva in his mouth," she said.
The boy, a camper at 3C's Day Academy, which is run out of a Sunrise home.
According to paperwork, the business owner, Cecily Roberts, has been investigated before. Once for leaving her underage daughter in charge, and she's been cited several times for having too many kids at the home. The maximum was supposed to be six, so what were eight children doing at the Tamarac apartment complex Wednesday?
"The lady wasn't supposed to have kids at the home so the daughter took the kids and brought them over here, but left one of them in the car," said neighbor Ashley Munns.
The daycare director's daughter is 20-years-old.
"She was rambling. She was very, very nervous, very frantic, crying in my arms," said Miyoshi.
"She asked one of the kids where the other was and one of the kids told her 'in the car still,'" said Munns.
Miyoshi says the young caregiver told her the kid was walking and he just passed out, but the Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating a possible homicide.
"My daughter questioned the 5-year-old which was the oldest of the bunch and he says that the little boy was left in the car," said Miyoshi.
