Shop­ping driver left boy on bus

The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - STATE -

PHILADEL­PHIA — Po­lice in Philadel­phia say a school bus driver is fac­ing charges for leav­ing a 7-year-old boy on a run­ning bus while he went gro­cery shop­ping.

WPVI-TV re­ported that 28-year-old Jamar Henry picked up the boy Mon­day af­ter­noon from a Chris­tian school in West Philadel­phia.

Henry then stopped at a ShopRite su­per­mar­ket, where po­lice say he told the child to stay on the bus while he went in­side.

A passer-by no­ticed the child alone and called po­lice.

While of­fi­cers were talk­ing to the child, Henry ran out of the store, telling po­lice he had a bath­room emer­gency.

Po­lice say store video doesn’t back up his claim.
