Child Kicked Off School Bus for Getting Sick
FLORIDA — A mother says she is upset after her 5-year-old daughter was kicked off the school bus for getting sick and left with a complete stranger.
According to The Huffington Post, the child had just boarded the bus when she began to feel sick and throw up. The child said the driver immediately told her to get off the bus and left her with a stranger on the side of the road.
Fortunately, the woman walked the child home.
District officials say bus drivers are required to call dispatch when a child becomes ill, but are not sure if that protocol was followed.
The bus driver has been reassigned to bus monitor duty.
