MANATEE, FL (AP) -- Authorities say a 15-month-old boy died when he was hit by an ice cream truck and dragged behind the vehicle. The Florida Highway Patrol says Raymundo Aguirre was dragged for about 900 feet -- about two and a half football fields -- before neighbors at a mobile home park stopped the truck.

The boy was being cared for by a baby sitter, who had taken him and two other children to the truck for ice cream. When they returned to their mobile home, Raymundo was missing.

Neighbors who had stopped the truck saw the child after the driver backed up. The boy died while being transported to Manatee Memorial Hospital.

The driver of the truck will not be charged but will receive a citation for having improper signage on the truck.

The babysitter didn't notice he was gone until they got back?

15 months old? She probably should have been carrying him.

Not cool dude.

Okay...I deleted it, since I didn't word that well... :wavey: I was referring to the babysitter sending out a CHILD to get an ice cream, but it did seem bad the way I wrote it.
