Iowa mom: Son, 6, was left at wrong bus stop

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A woman says her 6-year-old son was left in the subfreezing cold at the wrong bus stop about a tenth of a mile from his West Des Moines home.

Jennifer Cabanayan told Des Moines television station KCCI ( ) that the little boy attends a Waukee elementary school.

Cabanayan says her son thought his fingers were going to fall off Thursday. The National Weather Service says that between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thursday, the Des Moines area temperatures ranged from 12 to 19 degrees.

Durham School Services handles transportation for the Waukee School District. A company representative said only that the incident is being reviewed.

Waukee School Superintendent David Wilkerson says the bus driver was reassigned to a different route.
