A 10-year-old girl with special needs was bitten by another student while riding on their Wisconsin school bus this week, reported Foxnews.com.
The article said another girl on the special needs bus “gnawed” into Lillian Waldron’s arm as the victim was seated in a five-point-harness child safety restraint system.
Waldron couldn’t tell the other girl to stop or get away. According to WBAY-TV, the bus driver did not try to intervene.
The parents and school principal watched the school bus video surveillance of the incident. A representative from Lamers Bus Lines confirmed drivers are supposed to step in when physical fights break out, but the parents are claiming the driver did nothing.
The parents reportedly plan to contact an attorney to ensure special needs students have proper supervision in the future. Following the incident, the 10-year-old will be transported to school in a van with two adults and no other students.
The girl who allegedly bit Waldron reportedly has an emotional behavior disorder and no longer attends the same school as Waldon does.
