The preschooler's mother, Cindy Oroz, says she got a call from Sunnyside's Ocotillo Early Learning Center at 5702 S. Campbell late in the morning, saying her son was not at school.

According to Oroz, he was crying hysterically when he was found strapped in his seat inside the closed bus. The bus driver and the bus monitor are on paid suspension as the district investigates the incident. School officials say it's possible their procedures were not followed.
