Florida News

A South Florida man is being accused of leaving an elderly woman in a hot vehicle for more than four hours.

Oscar Augusto Dorador, 38, was arrested Wednesday and faces a charge of neglect of an elderly disabled adult, according to Broward County jail records.

On August 8, Dorador picked up the woman from her dialysis appointment in a medical transport van, deputies said in an arrest report. The victim told officials that she was never brought back to her residence and instead was driven to Dorador’s house and was left inside the van.

The woman is partially blind, has kidney issues, and uses a wheelchair, according to the report.

Dorador told officials that he arrived home at around 6:45 p.m. and did not realize she was still in the van at around 11 p.m. The victim was strapped inside the van with the doors locked, windows rolled up and without air conditioning for over four hours.

Dorador has since been fired from his job. He remains in jail on $15,000 bond. Attorney information was not available.
