11/13/2019 10:36:00 AM Kindergartener left at wrong bus stop in Decatur
DECATUR, Ill. (AP) — A 5-year-old central Illinois kindergartener needed the help of a good Samaritan to get home Monday after she was left in blowing snow at the wrong bus stop.
Decatur Public Schools officials said Tuesday they are investigating why Alltown Bus Service left the girl two blocks from where her mother was waiting for her. A college student heard the girl calling for help, stopped and the girl gave him her mother’s telephone number.
Amanda Hammer said she thanks God “it wasn’t a creep who came along” to help her child.
Schools spokeswoman Denise Swarthout says the district is working with Alltown to “ensure the safety of our students at all times.”
