An Omaha woman has been charged with child neglect after leaving a 3-year-old locked in a hot van Monday morning.
According to the Nebraska Radio Network, Tina Youngblood, 53, started picking up children around 7:50 am and dropped the children off at an area daycare around 10:00 am before returning home with the van around 10:30.
At around 11:30, a woman walking her dogs her a sound coming from the van which she initially thought was a cat; however, she soon realized it was a child crying. She immediately called the police.
Upon extracting the 3-year-old Demyiah Hayes from the van, responders noted the temperature inside the van was roughly 115 degrees. Demyiah was transported to a hospital to recover.
