Girl left in daycare center's hot car dies: 'How did you forget my baby?'

A one-year-old girl died after being left in a hot car by a daycare center driver.

Ra’Miyah Worthington was picked up in a van registered to the owner of Kidz of the Future Child Development Center II, along with two of her siblings, WOWT reported.

Her two siblings were taken out of the van, but she was not.

‘The daycare picks them up in the morning, early in the morning. My thing is how can you forget a kid that you yourself put into the vehicle, but you took the other two off?’ her father Reeyon Worthington told the TV station.

‘How do you forget one when you take two off the van? How did you forget my baby?’

The van was parked by the daycare center around 50th and Leavenworth in Omaha, Nebraska, on Monday after 3pm. It was not immediately clear how long Ra’Miyah was in the hot van.

She was rushed to Nebraska Medicine while CPR was administered. The baby was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The temperature that day reached into the upper 90s and the heat index was 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Ra’Miyah’s body temperature at the hospital was 109 degrees Fahrenheit, her parents told the station.

‘Due to the negligence of her daycare provider, her family is forever scarred,’ states a GoFundMe page set up to help with her funeral arrangements and expenses.

Ra’Miyah is survived by five siblings.

Her parents had been taking the children to the same daycare center for five years

‘The daycare has an app. They’ll tell you stuff with their kids throughout the day. She was never checked in,’ said Worthington said.

‘Only one of the three we sent was checked in, so put two and two together. You had to have my baby left in this car since this morning.’

The daycare van driver, Ryan Williams, 62, was arrested and charged with child negligence resulting in death.

Ra’Miyah enjoyed eating and dancing and was always smiling, her parents said.

‘She loved, loved, loved her family,’ said her mother, Sina Johnson. ‘She loved her daddy. She was daddy’s little girl.’

Ra’Miyah is survived by five siblings.
