The children started to scream for aid as they were stuck inside the bus, pleading for help from people passing by outside the windows. After hearing about the incident, outraged parents requested an explanation from the DeSoto County schools.
Concerned parent Missy Grubbs told Fox 13 that her child was also being “held hostage” on the bus. She disclosed that her 11-year-old daughter Bella was able to get in touch with her and let her know what was happening.
Missy Grubbs concerned more and more when she noticed her daughter’s return to the house was greatly delayed. She looked into the bus route because she had concerns about a possible collision or mechanical issue. She eventually came across the parked school bus, which had no air conditioning, the doors shut, and the motor off.
