Kindergarten student left on bus in cold

POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (AP) - A 5-year-old southeast Missouri boy is OK after being left on a school bus for about five hours in frigid weather.

Zayvion Johnson of Poplar Bluff was very cold after the incident on Tuesday, but a hospital examination found he was unharmed.

The Poplar Bluff Daily American Republic says police are investigating, and school officials admit procedures broke down. So far, the driver has not lost his job or been charged with a crime.

Zayvion's mother put him on the bus Tuesday morning. About 1:15 p.m., the school called to ask why the boy was not in class.

Zayvion had fallen asleep on the bus. The driver said he did a walkthrough but didn't see anyone.

But after getting a call about the missing boy, the driver checked again and found the child on the bus.
