Police: 4-year-old boy left on school bus, found 2 hours later

NEWNAN, GA (AP) — Authorities say a 4-year-old boy was left on a Georgia school bus Thursday morning and ended up outside of the driver’s home.

Coweta County School System spokesman Dean Jackson says a Jefferson Parkway Elementary pre-kindergarten student had fallen asleep on the bus but the driver didn’t notice.

Jackson says the driver later left the school and parked the bus outside his home around 7:45 a.m.

Officials say the boy was on the bus for about two hours before he left and was found by a construction worker.

The boy was taken back to the school.

Newnan police say no charges have been filed.

The driver was placed on administrative leave.
