The Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of Jordan Coleman, 4, of Sunrise, who was found unconscious in a hot day care SUV at a Tamarac apartment complex, the BSO said. His relative Cynthia Coleman and Miyshi Adnew, who gave CPR to the boy, talk about the tragic loss.
Cecily Roberts, 43, who owns 3C’s Day Academy, and Camille Gordon, 20, were arrested by New York Police just before 7 a.m., the BSO said.
Since then they moved to New York where they were operating another home day care, the L.R. Academy. It advertised itself as providing 24-hour care for children between 6 months and 12 years of age, according to the BSO.
Jordan Coleman, 4, died after he was left locked in the SUV for two and a half hours at the Versailles apartment complex in Tamarac on Aug. 1, the BSO said. He died in the care of Gordon and Ward, according to the BSO.
On Thursday Ward, 19, of Miramar, appeared in Broward bond court on a charge of aggravated manslaughter of a child in his death. She was released on $10,000 bond.
Roberts and Gordon also face one count each of aggravated manslaughter, while Roberts faces an additional charge of felony child care misrepresentation, the BSO said.
