Hillsborough toddler out of hospital after being left in SUV

1-year-old boy who was left inside hot suv for hours is released from hospital

A 1-year-old boy in critical condition last week after his parents left him inside a sport utility vehicle for hours was released Tuesday from the hospital, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said. Strapped into his car seat, Jadiel Rosario was left behind by his parents, Alexander Rosario and Douceaymee Lopez-Alvarez, both 26, after they returned to their apartment on E 127th Avenue on April 16. The parents — who also have children ages 8, 7 and 3 — had come home about 4 a.m. from visiting relatives, according to authorities. The parents took the other children inside. Alexander Rosario thought Lopez-Alvarez had brought Jadiel in, too. Lopez-Alvarez thought Rosario had. But neither had. The couple discovered the child in the hot SUV about noon. The child, who will turn 2 next month, was taken to Florida Hospital Tampa. Reached at their home Wednesday, the parents declined to comment.

Old prescription drugs will be collected

Authorities have collected more than 1,000 tons of prescription medications in events held across the county to collect old drugs. Now another national Take-Back Day is happening this weekend. People with unused or unwanted prescription drugs can turn them in from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. In Hillsborough County, the three drop-off locations are at Sweetbay supermarkets. The locations are 2535 State Road 60 in Valrico, 2525 N Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa and 15692 N Dale Mabry in Northdale.

Workshops to focus on Nebraska Avenue

The city's InVision Tampa planning project will hold two community workshops next week to present a report on issues and opportunities for the Nebraska Avenue corridor and to ask for ideas. City planners have been working with the AECOM consulting firm on a plan to improve parks, make the streetscape more attractive and plan for development along the corridor. The study area starts downtown, goes north on Nebraska to Hillsborough Avenue, then east to 22nd Street. The workshops are scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday at the offices of the Children's Board of Hillsborough County, 1002 E Palm Ave. To read the report, go to invisiontampa.com.
