In what seems to be a very scary and unfortunate new trend these days, yet another toddler was left on a cold school bus for a period of almost six hours. Understandably, his mom is more than a little bit concerned.
Mishiloh Akturk put her 3-year-old on the bus around 8 a.m. and sent him off to school, but she did not realize her poor kid had spent his school day trapped on a bus versus in his classroom where he belonged until she received a phone call at 2 p.m.
At that point, the transportation office informed her that the child "sat on the bus all day without heat or food or anything." She's assuming he fell asleep and the driver simply did not realize he was still on the bus. Did I mention that the bus is equipped with a Child Reminder System, which makes a noise as soon as the bus is turned off as a reminder to check the vehicle for sleeping kiddos?
