Bus Driver Leaves 5-Year-Old on the Side of the Road After She Vomits on Bus (VIDEO)

by Mary Fischer

school bus

A mom in Florida is understandably outraged after her 5-year-old daughter was kicked off the school bus by the driver after she started feeling sick and threw up on the way to school on Monday.

After little Lena Guzzo-Aguilar got sick, the driver supposedly instructed her to get off the bus immediately -- and he left her on the side of the road with a stranger and drove away.

Are you freakin' kidding me?!?

Check out this video to hear more about what happened.

Ugh. That poor child! If it already wasn't bad enough that she vomited on the bus in front of her classmates, can you imagine how humiliated and scared she must have been after being dumped on the side of the road like a dog?

What the heck is wrong with this guy? Yes, puke sucks. But news flash -- kids puke, because they're kids and that's what they do sometimes. And I know this dude claims that Lena ran off the bus after getting sick, but if that was the case, he still had to open the door to let her off. He certainly didn't have to turn her over to someone she didn't know to take her back home. (Seriously, who does something like that?!?)

I 100 percent agree with Lena's mother that this man should be fired and should not be allowed to work around kids anymore. If I were her, I wouldn't be satisfied until he was off the district's payroll for good -- because no one should be allowed to treat children in such a horrible manner without suffering the consequences.

Luckily the woman who Lena was left with that day was kind enough to take care of her by walking her home. Still, what if she'd been handed over to someone who didn't have a warm heart? That driver should be ashamed of himself for putting a little girl into a potentially dangerous situation all because he was grossed out and can't handle a kid throwing up.

Get over it, buddy. And the next time you find yourself driving the porcelain bus, put yourself in that little girl's shoes and think about how you'd feel if somebody cast you aside like trash.

Do you think the driver was justified in asking Lena to get off the bus?

WTH?!? I've never heard of something so ridiculous! The little girl gets sick and the bus driver kicks her off into the arms of a stranger and leaves? This cannot be real! He needs criminal charges. That's some sort of neglect and abandonment!!!

How can they justify not firing him?  The kids are in his care and you cannot just leave a child on the side of the road with a stranger.
