School bus goes over bump, emergency door opens, 2 Montgomery County students fall out

Two 5- and 6-year-old boys were on their way to Takoma Park Elementary School


So, 4 kids then?

Oh.. it was a "Backpack Strap". No, it was a kid who saw Exit and Open in the same sentence and that is just what they did.

By age 6, I probably would have wanted to do it again.

You might have a design flaw if a backpack strap could easily open the latch...that said, there's a pretty good likelihood that the kids were playing with the latch.

when the strap of a student's backpack got caught on the latch of an emergency exit door on the side of the bus

Bullshiat. The kids were farking with the emergency latch, and the school and the parents reached a deal where they blame it on an "accident", the parents don't sue, and their precious snowflakes don't get expelled.

Jesus. Ok, a kid opened the door. What do you want them to do? Do you really need it reported that little Jimmy Miller is the  5 year old bastard who opened the door and caused  the accident? Lets just be happy the kids are ok and move on.

Hmm. . .scrap the Hannah Montana/Justin Bieber Concert shuttle, Kinko.  Just follow this school bus for a few miles.

Around here, the driver makes the older kids sit near the emergency exits and the younger ones have to sit near the front.  Stories like this are probably the reason.

Yeah 5 and 6 year old boys have  a history of getting into mischief. Hope they learned a lesson from this and get no money.

This


That said - 5 and 6 year olds are not little shiat yet. I have a 6 year old, and really, they don't get that way for another couple of years.

When I was going to school, that would have automagically made them the coolest kids in school.

There is not a school bus driver alive that hasn't dreamed of having selectable ejection chairs in the back...

No, only one ejection seat needed: the bus driver's, so he/she can get away from the little farkers.

Probably This.

 The odds of a kid wearing a backpack (only way for it to have enough force to move the latch is for it to be attached to the kid) and having it hook around the emergency exit latch in the middle of winter (when kids are wearing coats which keep the straps reasonably snug) is damn near astronomical.

 Also depending on the age of the bus, those latches aren't always the easiest to move. It would've had to have been one hell of a bump.

 Not only that, what happened with the second kid? If you see your buddy pulled out the door by his backpack, did he immediately leap out himself? Buses generally aren't cornering fast enough to slide students that far.

 Nah, I vote horseplay.

 This is, incidentally, why many bus drivers only allow 3rd grade and up from the emergency exits to the rear.

Bullshiat. It's overrated and hasn't been any good since they moved across town several years ago.

Also, CSB time: When I was in first grade, my bus route went across a bridge (for the locals: Route 29 over Paint Branch Creek, just north of New Hampshire Avenue). When the back wheels of the bus first hit the bridge, the back of the bus would bounce up. We figured out that if we started jumping in our seats right before then, we could get a "resonance" that would cause us to go flying up toward the roof of the bus. Looking back, it's a miracle nobody hit their head.

On a related note: Have they actually started making kids wear seat belts on buses yet?

The one in Bethesda has been on that spot since 1958.  The reason I mentioned it was the theme was fire.  There was a fire at the Bethesda location that bummed out way more people than the bus fire.
