WOOD-TV reported the driver parked her bus at Belding Middle School last week after drop-off, but didn’t notice that the 4-year-old was still on board.
The driver was temporarily placed on suspension.
The Belding school district said the boy was alone for about a half-hour before someone spotted him trying to get off the bus.
His father, Raymond Boyd, said he feels badly the driver was suspended. Boyd said “humans make mistakes.”
Boyd said his son is fine.
The Belding superintendent said the bus driver made a mistake and has an otherwise excellent record.
