Day Care Driver Shut Off Safety Alarm Before Boy Died in Van: Report

Ceressa's Daycare surrendered its child care license earlier this week

An Oakland Park day care where a 2-year-old died after being left inside a van surrendered its child care license earlier this week.

County officials issued a notice of violation to Ceressa's Daycare on Friday, detailing five violations including a lack of supervision in the vehicle, no transportation log, no attendance log and improper seat belt and child restraints.

According to a report from Broward County Child Care Licensing and Enforcement, the driver also turned off a vehicle safety alarm that might have saved Noah Sneed's life. The child was left inside the vehicle for approximately five hours on July 29.

Authorities closed the day care a day after a worker found Sneed's body.

Officials are still investigating his death.
