Lee County-- A 4-year-old Lee County student was left on a school bus for nearly two hours. Now, his parents want answers and punishment for the bus driver.
4-year-old Canyon Hancock was left on a bus in the bus yard on Leslie Highway after he fell asleep on his way to school. His mother put the pre-k student on the bus at about 7:20 Friday morning.
After 9 a.m., she got a call from the school to see if Canyon was sick. She informed them that he was sent to school. At nearly 10, he was found after someone in the bus yard heard him crying and yelling from the bus.
The parents are upset that the bus driver apparently didn't check the bus after the route. They say Canyon could have wandered off or possibly suffocated.
"If he would have done his job. If he would have paid attention or if he would have walked that bus, he would have seen him and none of this would have never happened," says Hancock.
Hancock says he talked to the bus supervisor and the assistant school superintendent to find out what's been done to make sure this doesn't happen again. He says they told him they handled the incident but wouldn't give him specifics.
School superintendent Larry Walters Monday night confirmed the incident happened but would not comment further.
