Bus Driver Leaves 5-Year-Old on the Side of the Road After She Vomits on Bus (VIDEO)

OMG 139

school bus

A mom in Florida is understandably outraged after her 5-year-old daughter was kicked off the school bus by the driver after she started feeling sick and threw up on the way to school on Monday.

After little Lena Guzzo-Aguilar got sick, the driver supposedly instructed her to get off the bus immediately -- and he left her on the side of the road with a stranger and drove away.

Are you freakin' kidding me?!?

Check out this video to hear more about what happened.

Ugh. That poor child! If it already wasn't bad enough that she vomited on the bus in front of her classmates, can you imagine how humiliated and scared she must have been after being dumped on the side of the road like a dog?

What the heck is wrong with this guy? Yes, puke sucks. But news flash -- kids puke, because they're kids and that's what they do sometimes. And I know this dude claims that Lena ran off the bus after getting sick, but if that was the case, he still had to open the door to let her off. He certainly didn't have to turn her over to someone she didn't know to take her back home. (Seriously, who does something like that?!?)

I 100 percent agree with Lena's mother that this man should be fired and should not be allowed to work around kids anymore. If I were her, I wouldn't be satisfied until he was off the district's payroll for good -- because no one should be allowed to treat children in such a horrible manner without suffering the consequences.

Luckily the woman who Lena was left with that day was kind enough to take care of her by walking her home. Still, what if she'd been handed over to someone who didn't have a warm heart? That driver should be ashamed of himself for putting a little girl into a potentially dangerous situation all because he was grossed out and can't handle a kid throwing up.

Get over it, buddy. And the next time you find yourself driving the porcelain bus, put yourself in that little girl's shoes and think about how you'd feel if somebody cast you aside like trash.

Do you think the driver was justified in asking Lena to get off the bus?

Fired? That would not be enough! He should spend some time in jail. He put that little girl in serious danger! The bus drivers are responsible for our kids while they are on the bus and it's their responsibility to be sure they get to school and to their bus stop safely. This makes me absolutely sick! He needs to be fired AND arrested!!!

If he hasn't been fired, it's coming. And rightly so.

That driver should be fired IMMEDIATELY! Ironically, the last few school bus horror stories involve men. I think if it were a woman driver she would have naturally felt more compassion toward a sick child. Of course that's not speaking for EVERY woman but this is outraging. The child was sick as it is!! They should be required to CALL a parent when the child is sick. End of story. As it is I think itms despicable to leave a dog in the side of the road, but a CHILD?! That's unacceptable.

Even if the kid ran off the bus, and he opened the door in case she wanted to run out and puke more, how the fuck do you not make the kid get back on the bus? Much less leave her with whoever the hell she was left with, to walk home?

Man... this guy needs a swift kick in the dick

He should not only be fired, but also charged with child endangerment.

@the4mutts, I don't think it should stop at one swift kick.  How about one for every minute she walked home?

Todd: Yeah, I concede your point

If it were my 5yr old, I would be out for blood.

If the driver had pulled the bus over and got off with her until she was better, then that would have been one thing. However, this bastard left a FIVE YEAR OLD little girl on the side of the road with a stranger who could have done who knows what to her.

Throw his ass in jail and let the prisoners dish out their own justice.

What the hell??? What an ass. I would flip if I were the parents. This guy needs to be charged with child endangerment. This is sad. Not only was she sick but probably scared as hell. Poor little girl.

Agree with all of the above, especially the comments about a shot to the groin. Who does this, honestly?
