School bus driver kicks kid of bus

LEE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - A child in Lee County accidentally gets on the wrong bus, and, as a result, gets the boot because of his mistake.

Nine-year-old Ryan Scott told the bus driver as soon as he realized he wasn't where he should be. "She said I wasn't special, no one is special, so get off the bus," recalled Scott.

"It's scary as a parent, you don't want to see any child go through this. I don't think the bus driver should have a job anymore," said Scott's mom, Donna Whalen.

The 4th grader was dropped off over a mile away from his stop.

Thinking quickly, he decided to walk to a post office to use their phone. Knowing his mother worked for a post office in Naples.

Ryan's mother has filed a complaint with Lee County's School Transportation Department, in which, they are investigating the incident.
