WTF News: School Bus Driver Leaves Child on Bus and Goes to Zumba


Not sure how it’s possible to forget about a child but it happened.

A school bus driver in Houston faces felony child endangerment charges after she accidentally left a child alone on a bus while she went to Zumba class.

Via Khou:

Administrators at Fonwood Early Childhood Center placed a call to the child’s parents to confirm the absence for the day, which is standard procedure. The child was supposed to be in school, however, arriving by Garcia Bus Co.

Authorities immediately began searching for the child, who was found unharmed inside the parked bus at a facility where Contreras was attending a workout session.

Contreras did not see the child on the bus when she dropped the other kids off at school and did not check the bus thoroughly before ending her route, according to investigators.

Her bail was set at $2,000.

    This was clearly an unfortunate event and yes she should lose her job. However, the felony charge is a bit much considering it wasn’t malicious and the child was safe.

      I agree but think about the parents

      • jacksjus

        I’m thinking the kid had to have fallen asleep. That’s the only explanation for not alerting the driver. It’s just overall unfortunate.

        Yea but u can’t hide on school bus. She prob checked the rear view as she prob always does n saw nothing. I’m just happy the kid didn’t leave the bus and than got kidnapped. She deserves what she gets. She wasn’t thorough n it was complete human error

      if this was in the summer, the kid would have died from the heat and she would be on trial for murder.if u still think a felony was too much, u must not have kids. she not only should be charged with a felony but should never be able to work at a daycare again. plus daycare/childcare cost way to much for shit like that to be happening

      Yeah, the felony is overboard. This is not a felony. She should lose her job and have the charges dropped. Some sort of counseling and/or community service may be in order, too. But come on? A felony? She was headed to Zumba for god’s sake.

    with all that goes on in the world today! if that had been my younging, im bopping the driver over the head for the heart attack this situation would have induced.

  • brotha_man

    if this happened to my younging, this bus driver would catch one from wifey and all my sis….this would have had me in heart attack mode. I know the parents were going through one.

    • Jayson C Williams

    But why was the kid still in the bus? Was he handycapped or was he messing around and decided to hide in the back? Why didn’t he get out with the rest of the kids? No ones asking that…It was probably the stupid kids fault

    kid probably fell asleep, this happen more than people realize. This is why the driver is supposed to check all seats when done, just to make sure.
