Tragic toddler found dead inside minibus parked outside school

A three-year-old boy was found dead on a daycare minibus in Australia.

The minibus had been parked out in front of a school in Edmonton, south of Cairns and the boy was found at 3.15pm.

There doesn't seem to be a connection between the boy's death, the bus and school, reports The Guardian.

Detective Inspector Jason Smith told Channel Nine: “Investigations are currently continuing to work out the circumstances around that death.

“It’s early days and a number of factors could be at play here and we’ll investigate all possibilities.

“The death of any child is an awful thing which is why it’s so important for us to get to the bottom of this.”

Child Protection Investigation Unit detectives will also be investigating.

Childcare provider Goodstart Early Learning, in a statement, said it was “devastated by the death of a child in our care”.

“We are working to support the entire centre team, our families and our children.

“Our thoughts are very much with the family of the child at this time.”

Goodstart Early Learning said it would be working with the police, the Department of Education and Workplace Health and Safety as they investigated.
