(CMR) A four-year-old boy died after he was left in a car after being driven to school by a teacher in Jamaica on Thursday, 24 February.
The teacher reportedly carried a group of students to the school but that child did not get out of the vehicle.
Later in the day, the teacher reportedly went back to the car and discovered the unconscious child.
The child was taken to the Bustamante Hospital for Children where he was pronounced dead.
Educators and students at Destowe Bennett Basic School in Rollington Town were in mourning Friday, Jamaica Gleaner reported.
The child was taken to school by the teacher… and it seems as if everyone got out of the car and did not remember or figured more or less that the child had gotten out of the car,” Superintendent Tomielee Chambers told The Gleaner.
This is the second child who died in Jamaica since the start of the year after being left in a car.
A one-year-old child died at a police station in St Elizabeth, Jamaica last month after her father who is a police sergeant went to work and left her in his car.
