Watch: Family of Little Boy Who Died in Hot Daycare Van at ‘Little Miracles’ Demands Answers

Myles Hill’s mother and a man leaves roses for the 3-year-old child at the Little Miracles Academy on Gore Street and Plymouth Avenue on Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017.

*We’re still reeling from the death of little Myles Hill, who we reported yesterday had been found dead after being left in a van; where temperatures rose to the mid-90’s — for a reported 11-hours. 

We can’t even wrap our brains around how his mother must be feeling; not to mention his entire family and community.

*Oh god. When will horrors such as this end?

A woman five months pregnant had gone missing, but over the weekend, was found dead in the home she shared with her boyfriend and father, who lived downstairs in the Bronx residence.
