Kindergarten student left on bus

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - An investigation is underway into how a kindergarten student was left behind on a bus.

The child attends Benoist Farms Elementary and was left on the bus for two hours.

The boy did not get off the bus at 11:30 a.m. according to the school district.

The child was found in good condition at the Palm Beach County School Bus compound in suburban West Palm Bach. He was transported to St. Mary's Medical Center for an examination.

The child is now back in custody of his parents.

The district says there are procedures bus drivers are expected to follow when returning a bus to the school bus depot.

They are supposed to raise all the windows and do a 'walk through' to make sure no one is left behind.

The identity of the driver was not released.
