LINCOLN, N.Y. (AP) - The Madison County Sheriff’s Office reports that on two separate occasions, little boys were caught by their backpacks in school bus doors and hung in the air as the oblivious drivers drove on.

The Syracuse Post-Standard reports (https://bit.ly/1Cxy9JB ) neither child was hurt and neither driver was charged.

Last Thursday, the sheriff’s office says a 67-year-old driver was talking to another child as a 5-year-old boy was exiting his Stockbridge Valley Central School bus. The driver accidentally closed the door on the boy’s backpack and drove nearly a mile to the next stop. The boy was unhurt. The driver resigned, although officials decided not to press charges.

On Friday, a 6-year-old boy was similarly caught as a 61-year-old bus driver drove about 100 feet. Police investigated and said no charges are warranted.
