La Porte mom upset after 5-year-old left alone in bus mixup

LA PORTE - by Rucks Russell/KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

An old movie called Home Alone took on new meaning for a 5-year-old boy from La Porte this week when his school bus dropped him off on the side of the street by his house and left him there alone by mistake.

The bus driver ignored me, said Travis McGee as he tried to explain what happened.

His mother said the mistake was made on Tuesday when Travis was supposed to be taken to a nearby daycare center after school.

She pointed to a backpack her son wears that has instructions on it telling adults where hes supposed to go and on which days.

There are a number of people to blame for what happened, said Gina McGee.

She said both she and her husband were at work when the daycare center called the father wondering where little Travis was.

The father notified the district and they sent a bus to pick him up and bring him back to school.

Then a family friend brought Travis to her house until his mom could arrive.

"And I held him and I tried to explain to him what had happened and that it wasn't his fault," Gina said.

The mishap took place during the same week the district warned parents about a stranger who was seen approaching kids.

A school spokesperson said the bus driver waited until Travis walked through the front gate before pulling away from the house. The spokesperson also claimed the boy was only alone for about nine minutes until another bus came and picked him back up.

The spokesperson issued a statement which read in part:

We have listened to the parents concerns and are examining our policies and procedures so that we can help ensure that a situation like this does not happen again.

But Traviss mom planned to press charges against the district.

They need to be held accountable, Gina said.
