GREEN BAY, Wis. — A school district in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is investigating after parents say their little girl was attacked on the school bus.
According to WBAY, the parents of Lillian Waldron say their 10-year-old daughter was bitten multiple times by another girl on the school bus this week.
Lillian’s mom, Lynn Waldron-Moehle, said her daughter is developmentally delayed, has mannerisms of a 2-year-old and cannot speak. Lillian’s dad, Chad Waldron, said the bus is for children with special needs.
Waldron-Moehle said her daughter was crying uncontrollably when she got off the bus.
“She loves baths and that’s soothing to her, so I brought her home, and I was getting her ready for the bath and I took her sweatshirt off and that’s when I noticed the major bruising on her upper arm,” she told WBAY.
Lillian’s mom said the elementary school principal watched video of the incident which was captured on the bus’ camera and described it as “gruesome” and “horrifying.”
“She can’t tell them to stop. She couldn’t get away. She’s in a five-point harness car seat. She just had to sit there and take it. And the bus driver wasn’t stopping,” Waldron-Moehle said.
The superintendent released a statement to WBAY that said, in part, “The District is conducting an investigation into the situation and will be working with the bus company to ensure appropriate processes and procedures are in place to prevent this from occurring in the future.”
The girl who allegedly attacked the child is no longer going to the school.
