Associated Press Release
NAPLES, Fla. (AP) -- A 57-year-old southwest Florida school bus driver has been charged with child neglect after a child was choked unconscious by another child on the bus she was driving.
Collier County Sheriff's officials said Irena Fulton didn't try to help the victim during the attack and never stopped the bus on Tuesday.
A sheriff's report said the unprovoked suspect put the male student in a choke hold and choked him unconscious. Another student helped the child off the bus and onto the sidewalk. Deputies said Fulton didn't call 911 and the bus depot staff didn't hear about incident until the school called the next day.
The student was charged with felony battery on Thursday. Fulton was arrested the next day. The Associated Press is not naming the students because they are minors.
