Police arrested a 30-year-old bus driver on Tuesday on suspicion of leaving a sleeping child on his bus following a 'Tirat Hayeled' boarding school day camp trip to Netanya.
It appears the nine-year-old child fell asleep on the way back from the trip, but the driver, who let all the other children out, failed to notice that the boy was still sleeping on the bus. He then drove to his home in Kalanswa, parked the bus and entered his house. The child woke up in the middle of the night and managed to open the bus door.
A resident of the Israeli-Arab town then phoned the police after the boy knocked on his door saying he did not know where he was. Police arrived at the scene and then located the child's mother, who picked him up at the local police station.
