A shocking video emerged Wednesday, showing the moments after a five-year-old Charedi child was let off a school bus on a busy road in Beit Shemesh.

A passing civilian noticed the child standing alone on the road, and asked what had happened. In the video, the boy is heard saying the driver let him off since he was not properly buckled.

As can be seen in the video, the child standing was alone on a highway, with no buildings or people in sight.

In a statement, the bus company said the bus chaperone and not the driver, was the one who decided to let the child off. The child, they said “caused problems…and was therefore let off the bus.”

The statement reads: “The Dikla transportation company is a professional company which abides by safety rules. In this case, the chaperone ordered the driver to let the children off. Any questions or comments should be directed to the client who ordered the bus, and not to the company itself.”
