Flint Child Was Forgotten On The School Bus For Hours In Dangerously Cold Temps [Video]
Va’Ton was put in a scary situation as he woke up alone on the bus in frigid temperatures, and it only got worse as he waited hours for the bus driver to return.
ABC12 talked to Va’Ton’s mom who said that it was -7 when her son boarded the bus headed for Eagles Nest Child Care Center in Flint.
On the ride there Va’Ton fell asleep, and stayed asleep as the other kids exited the bus to go into the school. It wasn’t until the bus driver returned to pick up the kids at 2pm that she noticed the 4 year old on the freezing cold bus.
The bus driver has admitted that she made a mistake, and has apologized. Luckily Va’Ton had a pillow and blanket packed with him so he was able to cover up while he waited. He is expected to be fine, but now his mom and the child care center need to figure out what to do about the situation.
