This morning on the radio, they were talking about a story coming out of Pennsylvania about a mom that was waiting at the bus stop for her child to get off the bus. When the bus stopped, kids are yelling at her for help saying that her son wasn't waking up and wasn't moving. From the window, she sees her son slumped over in his seat, unresponsive. Being a registered nurse, not to mention his mother, she rushes onto the bus to help. The bus driver informs her that it is illegal for parents to go on the school bus. Now, this woman is facing a $2500 fine and up to a year in jail. As it turned out, her son was completely fine, just in a deep sleep. What are you opinions on this? Personally, I think it is absolutely ridiculous! If kids were yelling at me that one of my girls wasn't moving and needed help, nurse or not, I am on that bus! It is my duty as a mother to protect my children. If I fear for their health or safety, you better believe that the law will take a back seat. Also, shouldn't the bus driver have been more concerned with the child than keeping the mom who is a nurse off the bus? Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't nurses and doctors required by law to help if they come upon someone in need? What if the bus had been in a crash? Would that mother still have been arrested if she went onto the bus to pull out the children? Or, what if her child DID need medical help? What if he really wasn't breathing and she did help him? I doubt that she would have been arrested in that case. What are your thoughts?
