Driver, monitor suspended after child left on Oklahoma bus

The Associated Press - December 14, 2018 10:00 am

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma school bus driver and a bus monitor have been suspended after a 7-year-old girl was left alone on the bus for several hours.
The Mid-Del school district announced the suspensions Wednesday. The district says the driver failed to follow procedure of walking the length of the bus at the end of the route to be sure no one remained on board.
Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes says the girl has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair. He says the child was alone on the parked bus for five or six hours Tuesday before being discovered when the driver and monitor returned to the vehicle.
Clabes says the girl was taken to a hospital by her mother and was released in good condition.
