When she returned to the vehicle, she discovered the child inside.

The two-year-old was in critical condition while being transported to Brandon Regional Hospital, where he died late Tuesday afternoon.

Investigators say 21-year-old Fiorella Silva-Tello went into work at a daycare in the Oak Park Shopping Center in Brandon, leaving her half-brother, Jacob Manchego, in the SUV. The local business said Jacob was not in their care at the time of his death and his half-sister "made a tragic mistake".

Little Jacob Manchego was inside the locked auto from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. without the engine running and without air conditioning.

Officials said the woman was distraught and brought the toddler into a nearby dialysis center seeking medical aid.

No charges had been filed Tuesday, according to a sheriff's office.

"In this case, a mother lost her 2-year-old son to her 21-year-old daughter and it's a terribly sad situation", the detective said. "We remind ourselves, we remind our family, we remind our people that pick up our kids - look back there and check".

The temperature was in the high 80s in Tampa on Tuesday.

Tuesday night, Silva-Tello returned home with her parents with her head covered with a jacket after a devastating day.

Parents picking up their children from the day care rushed them past reporters and crime scene tape. Investigators will also be reviewing Jacob's prior history, including any calls for service at the residence in Brandon where the child lived. He says the investigation into Jacob's death will leave "no stone unturned"-and he wants the death to be a reminder of "what we should do when transporting our children".
