DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida day care worker has turned herself in after a toddler she transported was left in a hot car and died.

Amanda Inman surrendered Monday on a single charge of aggravated manslaughter of a child.

Inman told investigators she typically double-checks every row in the cargo van after dropping children off, but inexplicably broke her routine the day 2-year-old Haile Brockington was left behind.

Authorities say the girl was in the car more than seven hours.

Day care centers are supposed to record and verify the arrival and departure time of every child transported, but the co-worker who helped Inman unload says she was never told of her responsibility to double-check passenger logs.
