Ah shit...another one. Someone left an 8 month old in a van all day..the day care worker forgot the little boy was there and didn't discover him until he went to go pick up kids from school.. Terribly sad and a good reminder to not leave your children in cars...even if they are running. Yes it sucks to drag them around, but burying them sucks unimmaginably more. Also, checking to see if your day care has a system of checking kids in and making sure they are accounted for is very important. If you haven't done so now, then maybe this will make you think it a bit more important to do.

DUNCANVILLE – An 8-month-old boy was found dead this afternoon in a Chevrolet Suburban parked at Central Elementary School.
Police said they received a call from a man who said that a young boy in the SUV was not breathing.
"We have heard reports that the child could have been in the car as early as some time this morning," said Keith Bilbrey, Duncanville city spokesman. Police are not releasing the name of the driver, who police is interviewing.
Temperatures were forecast to reach 100 degrees Wednesday afternoon.
In June, a 2-year-old boy died after being left inside a day care van parked outside a Lancaster day care center. The boy, Alan D. Brown Jr., died June 3. Two day care workers were indicted Tuesday on charges of injury to a child in connection with the case.
