'I Want Justice': Viewing for Toddler Who Died in Daycare Van

Loved ones will gather Friday evening at a viewing service for the 2-year-old boy who was found dead inside an Oakland Park day care van nearly two weeks ago.

The owner of Ceressa's Daycare surrendered her license to the county this week. It has been closed since Noah Sneed's death on July 29.

A final inspection report revealed the van driver did not follow required state rules about transporting kids and turned off the van's alarm before any of the children were out of the vehicle. The alarm could have prevented tragedies like Sneed's death.

The child was in the van for five hours before anyone noticed he was in there. Temperatures were up to the 90s that day.
