FOI At Work: Boy Left Sleeping on Bus...

A young boy was caught on tape being left on a school bus as his classmates headed off to class.

The incident was captured on the bus's security camera, and 24 Hour News 8 obtained the tape via the Freedom of Information Act.

It was January 16 when the seventh grade student was on his way to Lakeshore Middle School in Grand Haven. The bus pulled up to the school and the other kids on the bus got off. However, the boy didn't as he fell asleep and the bus driver never noticed.

The driver then traveled to the bus garage where she can been seen on the videotape leaving the bus without checking to make sure it was empty.

She returned to the bus 20 minutes later to pick up more kids. The boy then woke up but didn't say anything. She doesn't notice him until he came up front when the bus made its first stop.
