Cynthia Shepard is still asking questions after her 16-year-old son, Andrew, was kicked off a Broward County, Fla., school bus while he he was suffering a seizure.
"He looked my child in his face and told him to get off the bus," Cynthia Shepard told Miami and Fort Lauderdale station WSVN-TV. "How do you do that?
According to WSVN-TV, Andrew's younger sister, Jazmen, took her brother off the bus as his seizure begin on April 16. They were traveling to their house from McNicol Middle School.
The siblings fell to the ground as they exited the bus, with the driver pulling off to complete the rest of his bus route. Jazmen called 911, and several neighbors came to the girl's assistance as they watched what was happening.
Paramedics arrived on the scene shortly. They discovered that Andrew's blood sugar had dipped below normal and he could have gone into diabetic shock. Andrew stayed in the hospital for two days following the seizure.
In a statement given to Fox News by Broward County Schools, the driver is no longer on any school routes. He also took several days off work following Shepard's incident.
The bus driver "left my son pretty much to die," Shepard added. "If my daughter was not here, my son wouldn't be here today."
