BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a disabled second-grader was left alone on an empty school bus for hours in South Florida.

The Palm Beach Post (https://goo.gl/ZS1f8p ) reports that the child was supposed to be dropped off at J.C. Mitchell Elementary in Boca Raton Monday morning. School district officials say the driver and aide didn’t notice the student was still on board when they left the bus at a depot in Boynton Beach. The district’s transportation director says the child was presumably alone on the bus for about three hours before being discovered by a mechanic.

Officials say the student didn’t appear to be injured.

Officials say the bus driver was fired immediately, and the aide is facing an investigation that could lead to eventual termination.
