ORLANDO, Fla. - Friends and family got together and stood up for 3-year-old Myles Hill at a rally Saturday morning.
The group walked 30 minutes from the Hill family house to the daycare where Myles died, chanting a call for justice.
Police said the toddler was found dead inside a daycare van at Little Miracles Academy in Orlando Monday. He spent nearly 12 hours inside the van—on a day when the high temperature was 93 degrees.
“This is a drastic way for anybody to leave here you know, especially a 3-year-old child,” said Stovelleo Stovall, a pastor at God is Able Outreach.
Outside the daycare, people have laid balloons, stuffed animals, and flowers as a makeshift memorial.
Stovall said the march wasn’t just for Myles, but also all children, and to urge daycares to pay attention.
“We need people that are really going to be dedicated. If you’re going to work at a daycare, you got to know it’s a very important job,” he said.

Police said Deborah St. Charles was arrested Thursday on charges of aggravated manslaughter of a child in connection with the death of Myles.
During a hearing Friday, the judge set St. Charles' bail at $30,000 and stipulated that she not work at a child care facility or have unsupervised contact with minors.
