A three-year-old kindergartener died after she was left behind in a hot school van in Thailand, police said Thursday after arresting the driver
The girl was discovered Wednesday afternoon after her mother went to pick her up at the end of school in the southern province of Pattani and was told the child was absent.
"The girl's body was pale, no wounds, with a little blood stain at her nose," Montri Kongwatmai, commander of the Sai Buri district police, told AFP. "She must have thrashed around." The heat inside the stuffy van and a lack of air caused her death, Montri said, citing the autopsy results.
He was charged with negligence resulting in death.
