MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Miami police continue to investigate after a 2-year-old boy left in a van died Wednesday.

It all started at around 3:45 p.m. when police responded to a call of an unresponsive child in a van.

When Miami police and Miami rescue arrived to the address in the 4100 block of NW 7th Avenue, they realized it was a daycare center.

“We’re not sure whether or not the child was in there for a short period of time, what happened to the child that caused him to be unresponsive,” said Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll.

Miami police said the 2-year-old boy was found outside Vision for Life academy.

He was taken to Jackson Memorial Pediatrics unit, and at the time he was in critical condition.

“Right now we have a child that’s inside fighting for his life. We have a family that’s probably unaware of what’s going on. And we’ve got paramedics along with police officers who are praying for a positive outcome,” Carroll said.

Shortly after 8 p.m., police announced that the child didn’t make it.

It was a difficult scene to work for the first responders who tried to save the 2-year-olds life.

“As you know, even though we have a job to do we are still human, and we have a lot of people here who are parents,” Carroll said. “So seeing something like this is heart wrenching.”
