Memorial for Mississauga Toddler Who Died in Hot Car Grows Larger
A memorial with a sign that reads "Children's Lives Matter" is growing larger by the day, attracting more heartbroken residents and neighbours who are leaving flowers and stuffed animals on the sidewalk to honour Mississauga toddler Patrick Adamski.
You can see a brief video showcasing the growing memorial, located in the parking lot where three-year-old Adamski was left in a hot vehicle for several hours—reportedly by his caretaker.
According to Toronto police, Adamski tragically passed away on Thursday, Sept. 21, after being removed from an overheated vehicle in Etobicoke (right on the Mississauga border) by emergency crews.
Police say officers were called to the Mill Road and Burnhamthorpe Ave. area around 1:00 p.m. to respond to the incident.
According to police, Adamski was unconscious when he was located and was immediately rushed to hospital.
Sadly, he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.
A 50-year-old Toronto woman, Zeljna Kosovac, was arrested a short time later and charged with criminal negligence causing death.
She has since been released on bail.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact police at 416-808-2200.
