Heartbroken relatives of a 3-year-old boy who died after being left in a hot van outside a day care facility in Florida say his death is simply "not right" - and was the result of gross negligence.

Myles Hill, a child in the center's care, spent about 11 hours in a hot van Monday outside the Little Miracles center in the city's Parramore section.

Police said the daycare worker admitted that a headcount of children had not been done.

Temperatures in Orlando reached 34C (93F) on Monday, according to the National Weather Service. "This is an absolute tragedy which could have been prevented".

An initial investigation revealed that the day-care worker, who has not been identified by police, picked up Myles and other children Monday morning and drove them to another Little Miracles Academy, police said. The Florida Department of Children and Families are also conducting their own separate investigation into the incident.

Man City defender opens up about struggles under Pep Guardiola
Iheanacho is on the verge of joining Leicester City after dropping down the pecking order in Guardiola's Manchester City attack. Spurs' only win in the competition came against Paris St-Germain, with Saturday's defeat adding to a loss against Roma.

"(We) said, 'Gone where?' And she pointed at the van", Livingston told WKMG-TV.

An autopsy is being performed on the child, Mina said, but "we believe Miles was in the hot van all day long". He was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. "I loved Myles, I took care of Myles since he was a baby", she said. If confirmed, Myles' death in a hot vehicle would be the fifth for a Florida child this year and the 32nd nationwide, Mina said.

The Herald reports Myles was meant to be dropped off at a different Little Miracles Academy location, but was taken to a different location where he was found on the floor of the vehicle hours later.

According to the Police Chief, Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) is investigating the Little Miracles Academy. Other violations included not having a caretakers in sight when the children were napping and not keeping attendance records during a fire drill, the records say. The rule requires day care centers to maintain logs of the time children arrive, where they were supposed to be transported and what time they departed. Local news media reported that the facility was closed. "It would've been different if she had come out", Esters said.
