A terrifying video has surfaced showing the moment a 6-year-old Kentucky girl was dragged 1,000 feet by her school bus… while the driver was left oblivious to what was happening.
Video of the incident – which took place in 2015 – is expected to be shown in Jefferson County court as part of a civil action against the driver, Melinda Sanders, and the school district. The video begins with the little girl getting off the bus… but things go horribly wrong when her backpack gets stuck by the doors.
You can see the girl desperately trying to get the bus driver’s attention … but the driver takes off and doesn’t seem to check if the girl got off the bus first.
In the video … a student is seen standing next to the bus driver but the student doesn’t notice the girl’s tiny body being dragged. The bus even makes a left turn and you can hear the cars honking in the bus.
The driver tells a student to sit down and then seems to finally notice that the little girl is caught in every parent’s worst nightmare. The bus driver was quickly fired after the incident.
As for the child … she reportedly suffered severe nerve damage and PTSD and required multiple surgeries. The family are suing for unspecified damages.
