ORLANDO — An estate representative is suing Little Miracles Academy Inc., Little Miracles Academy 11 LLC., Audrey Thorton and Deborah Denise St. Charles for alleged negligence.
Norberto Katz, personal representative of the estate of Myles Keymari Hill, a deceased minor, filed a complaint on Aug. 15 in the Orange County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendants failed to exercise reasonable care and caution for the safety of children.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Hill was found lifeless on Aug. 7 inside the vehicle outside the defendants' property several hours after not being brought home from the day care facility. St. Charles allegedly was driving the van and left Hill inside for hours, which allegedly caused his death. As a result, Hill's survivors allegedly suffered damages, including mental pain, suffering, loss of the decedent and funeral and burial expenses.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to correctly document the transportation of children on a daily basis, do a proper head count of the children and for allegedly failing to properly monitor the children in their care.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages against the defendants, along with any other relief the court deems just. He is represented by Carlos R. Diez-Arguelles of Diez-Arguelles Tejedor in Orlando and Gary Siplin of Siplin Law PA in Orlando.
