In perhaps one of the most disheartening stories regarding the lack of compassion plausible by mankind, a boy was recently left to die while having a seizure. While riding the bus, the boy began to seize where he was ordered off the bus and the driver drove away.

The story comes out of Florida where 16-year-old Andrew Shepard was riding the bus home with his sister, Jazmen Lucas. During this time, she explains, “He was on the bus in the back, and I turned around and saw him twitching.”

As it turns out, Andrew has a deadly condition where he suffers from both diabetes and Addison’s disease. Together, the conditions can cause dangerously low blood sugar levels that can sink so low, those that suffer from the conditions, can fall into a comma and ultimately die.

As the siblings got off the bus however, Jazmen brought the issue to the bus driver and pleaded, “Can you take me home like to my house because he’s having a seizure?” Instead of mercy and compassion however, the bus driver responded by saying, “No, you got to get off the bus.”

He then proceeded to dive away without contacting anyone in the meantime.

According to Jazmen, from there, “He fell on me and then he fell on a mailbox a couple houses down. So, I called my mom and I said that he’s having low blood sugar and she said, ‘Call 911.’” He was then picked up by an ambulance who took him to an area hospital where he was treated.

Since that time, Andrew’s mother, Cynthia, has come forward to express her outrage noting, “He looked my child in his face and told him to get off the bus. How do you do that? I’m beyond furious.” Cynthia further explained that, “The paramedics got there, his blood sugar was 30. A normal blood sugar is 80 to 120. He can die. He can go into a diabetic coma and die.”

Speaking directly about the bus driver, Cynthia said, “He’s a coward. He let my son get off this bus and left my son pretty much to die. If my daughter was not there, my son wouldn’t be here today. All he had to do was call 911. No one asked you to help him, put your hands on him or anything, just call 911, and you didn’t.”

Andrew ended up spending two days in the ICU of the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital where he was later released with, “an increased dose of his medication.” The school has since announced that they are currently conducting an interview to determine exactly what happened. As the bus was equipped with a surveillance camera, the school is hopeful to learn a more accurate and definitive rendering of what actually took place.

What do you guys think – is there any excuse of a human being, let alone a bus driver, to act in such a way? Let us know in the comments below.
