NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - A New Albany day care has made policy changes after the death of an infant whose father said he was left in a hot car.

Aiden Miller died in late July. His father, Aaron Turner, told WAVE 3 News the three-month-old's mother dropped their daughter off at Kids Care Academy but forgot to take Aiden to his day care before going into work at Express Care.

After he was found by his mother, Aiden was rushed to Baptist Floyd Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

To prevent a similar tragedy, Kids Care Academy has put an attendance alert system in place. If a child isn't at day care by 9 a.m., parents will receive an automated text message asking about the absence.

New Albany Police are still investigating Miller's death.
