Driver, Aide Fired After 3-Year-Old Child Left on a Bus

SCRANTON, Pa. -- A school bus driver and an aide who was responsible for the headcount have been fired after a 3-year-old child was left on a bus Wednesday in Lackawanna County.

The child, who was enrolled in the Head Start program, was OK after being left on the bus when the child was supposed to be dropped off at a preschool facility inside North Pocono High School in Covington Township.

The executive director of the Scranton-Lackawanna Human Development Agency, which administers the Head Start program, says the agency is taking steps to make sure a mistake like this does not happen again.
