Qld Driver Sacked Over Five Year Old Girl Left On Bus
A Queensland bus driver has been sacked after a five-year-old girl was left alone and trapped on the vehicle for several hours, sparking a major search.
Ross Belsham told the Nine Network on Thursday even though he was responsible, several factors contributed to Alyssa being unnoticed on January 22.
Staff at the Jimboomba State School did not check off her name, Mr Belsham said, while alleging her mother Bobbie Langdon, was not at the bus stop to collect her, contradicting information she gave police.
Ms Langdon threatened Logan Coaches to expect a letter from her lawyer after Alyssa was found "petrified and crying, banging on the school bus doors to get out" about 7.10pm that evening.
