Rutherford student left on bus on first day of school

 

A Rutherford County student was found on the school bus he took to school more than 90 minutes after he was supposed to have arrived at school on Wednesday.

Kim Luther said her 16-year-old son with Down syndrome had boarded the bus for Blackman High School on the first day of school.

She received a call later that morning that her son was missing.

Luther was worried her son may have bullied or abducted before he was found on the school bus about 90 minutes later.

Luther said her son was OK.

The school system said it was investigating the incident.

The Luther family is familiar with the bus driver and said there had not been any issues until Wednesday.
