Prosecutor rules out charges in death of tot left in hot van
LAS VEGAS -- A high school teacher who accidentally left his 7-month-old son in a hot van for eight hours will not face charges in the boy's death, a prosecutor says.
A child neglect charge was not appropriate because Centennial High School teacher David Fish did not intentionally neglect or abuse his son, Hayden, Clark County District Attorney David Roger said in a memo Friday.
Accidents are not covered by the statute, Roger said.
Fish placed Hayden in the back seat of the family van to take him to day care on June 5. Then, running behind schedule and exhausted, Fish stopped for coffee, drove to work and forgot Hayden was in the car, authorities said.
Fish discovered Hayden later in the day when he went to pick up another son at day care. Hayden's temperature was 110 degrees, paramedics said. He died the next day at a hospital.
