WASHINGTON (AP) - Eight siblings found crying and shivering on a District of Columbia doorstep told the woman who found them that they had been kicked off three Metro buses as they tried to get to school.

Acurah White tells WTTG-TV (https://bit.ly/14l5P1f ) that she saw the children, ages 4 to 14, on a porch across a busy street from her northeast Washington home around 9 a.m. Tuesday.

White says the children were scared, crying and freezing. She says she and her boyfriend gathered them up, took them inside, set them in front of a heater and covered them with blankets.

Then they called 911. An ambulance bus took the children to the hospital, and they’re now back home safe.

A Metro spokesman says it’s investigating the children’s story and if true, it “should not have happened.”
