Special-Needs Boy Left On Hot School Bus For Six Hours

The mother of a 12-year-old special needs boy, who can't communicate verbally, says he was left for six hours on a hot Dallas school bus.

A Dallas independent school district employee spotted Uriel Arellano sleeping on the bus yesterday as temperatures rose above 100 degrees. The bus' windows were down, keeping it cooler than if they were closed.

The boy's mother, Emma Arellano, says she thought her son was dead when she first learned he'd been left on the bus. Officials say the driver's been placed on administrative leave.
