RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) - A driver and an aide have been fired for leaving a 4-year-old boy unattended inside a parked school bus.
The child apparently fell asleep and was overlooked after the bus arrived at Highland Heights Elementary School on Friday. Transit official James Regan says the driver and aide were fired for disregarding a safety policy requiring employees to walk to the back of the bus after each trip to make sure all children have left the vehicle.
The names of the driver and aide were not released by the company that operates the buses for Richmond Community Schools.
The boy, Kameron Scofield, was found about two hours later by a bus mechanic.
