ATHENS — Five people have been arrested for placing a child at risk after a two-year-old girl was forgotten alone in a school bus for four hours, police announced on Tuesday.
According to police sources, the little girl fell asleep on the bus on her way to a day-care centre in the seaside suburb of Voula and did not get off with the other children when it arrived. Neither the driver nor any of the staff at the daycare centre noticed and she remained locked in the bus on her own. When she woke, she started crying and was heard by a woman that was passing by, who called the police.
Among those arrested were the driver and two bus attendants and those in charge of the daycare centre.
