Caregiver charged after boy, 4, left in hot car dies

The boy was left in a car for four hours in Etobicoke on Thursday when it was 26 C outside.

A Toronto woman will appear in court this morning following the death of a child who was left for hours in a hot car Thursday.

Zeljna Kosovac, 50, is charged with criminal negligence causing death.

The four-year-old boy died after he was left in a red Hyundai parked near Burnhamthorpe and Mills Rds. for about four hours on a day with a high of 26 C.

Toronto police said Kosovac was a caregiver for the child, whose name was not immediately released.

Residents of a nearby apartment building told the Star that the boy was found unconscious around 1 p.m. by a superintendent, who smashed in one of the car’s windows to rescue him.

Paramedics rushed the boy to the hospital in critical condition, but he later died.
