An Upper Darby daycare owner is facing criminal charges after leaving a 5-year-old boy in her car for three hours yesterday as temperatures soared in to the 90s, according to police.
Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said the boy was unconscious when he was discovered and the child remains in critical condition at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Norma Davis, 58, of Yeadon, owner of the Family Play Center on Union Street near Baltimore Avenue, allegedly picked up the boy and two other children in her 2002 Buick minivan at the Park Lane School in Darby around 3 p.m.
She drove back to the Family Center and when the boy's mother came to pick the child up at 3 p.m. it was discovered he was not in the building. That's when Davis ran out to her car, Chitwood said.
