Shocking Footage: Little Boy Tumbles Out of Moving School Bus

This raw video is scarily shocking. A little 8-year-old boy was on the bus with numerous other students. He appears to stand up and sit back down a few times. As he sits back in his seat for the last time, a window pops out and he tumbled out of the moving bus.

See for yourself:

According to Daily Mail, Jaquez White was on is way home from Ninety Six Primary School in South Carolina. While he was squirming, sitting, and standing, his backpack caught the emergency door’s latch and lifted it into an open position. Then, when he sat back and just barely leaned on the door, it sums open and flung him out of the moving bus.

The packed bus of school children are then heard screaming at the driver to tell him Jaquez had fallen out.

‘It was really scary, I could feel like I was falling,’ the eight-year-old told the Index-Journal.

‘I really didn’t know what happened. I didn’t know the door opened. I hit my head first, and then my back.’

But his mother is outraged about how her son was able to tumble out of the moving school bus.

‘For him to be happy one minute, just playing with his friend and then out the door the next, I’m like no way,’ Jacqueline White told WSPA.

White recorded her son’s fall on her phone while she was being shown the video by police. She then posted it online.

An assistant superintendent with the school district said an alarm was supposed to sound once the emergency latch was opened, however the upset mother said one cannot be heard in her video.

Thankfully he only received some cuts and bruises. It could have been so much worse. God must have been looking out for this little guy!
