GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Goodyear say an autistic teen mistakenly left on a bus in sweltering temperatures has been found.
Police spokeswoman Lisa Berry says the 16-year-old was one of several students who took the bus Tuesday morning.
After dropping off students at school, the driver parked the vehicle.
Exit procedures require a driver check every row of the bus for passengers. Berry says the bus driver failed to do so in this case.
Police were called around noon to Precious Home Services, a day care for disabled children, when the teen remained missing.
The teen was located on the bus and taken to the hospital for heat-related issues. A full recovery is expected.
The investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
