A 3-year-old boy was forgotten in a kindergarten bus, where he spent four hours locked up in an empty vehicle. When he was found and released from the torture, the boy was so shocked that he did not speak for several hours.
The incredible incident took place in Pallini area of East Attica on Tuesday morning.
The mother told media that she had helped her son into the busy at 7:30 a.m. The kindergarten call her at 11 o’ clock asking whether the boy was “sick” and therefore “absent from the kindergarten.”
The mother was shocked and informed the school administration that she had personally accompanied the child to the bus.
The school staff started to search around and found the toddler still on his seat with the safety belt around and in tears.
The mother and his grandfather brought the child to a hospital for a health check. Doctors reportedly found out that the boy had increased blood sugar, possibly from the shock. He did not speak for three hours, the mother told media.
“Mama, I was alone and I was crying,” the toddler told his mother after he found his voice back.
According to media, the incident occurred inside the school court yard. The children arrived with the school bus and then a second bus transported them to the entrance of the building.
It was during the transfer from one bus to the other that the boy was “forgotten.”
Police has arrested the school director, the bus driver and the accompanying staff.
The toddler’s grandfather said that it looks that the director will not be charged.
The toddler’s family demands sanctions also against the administration of the private school saying “we signed the contract with the school, not with the driver.”
