A female babysitter is facing chargers after a young child in her care died in hospital.

The child, a four-year-old boy, was found in a car in Etobicoke on Thursday afternoon. He was taken to a Trillium Health Partners hospital in critical condition and pronounced dead.

The boy had just turned four, police told 680 NEWS. As of Friday morning, a memorial was growing outside the building where he lived.

The car was behind an apartment building on Mill Road, near Burnhamthorpe, around 1 p.m.

The vehicle’s windows were smashed and a child car seat was sitting on the sidewalk.

The babysitter will appear in court on Friday. She’s expected to be charged with criminal negligence causing death.
