15 Injured In Incident On School Bus This Morning


15 people are injured after an incident on a school bus at Ocean Avenue and Dorchester Road this morning, says the FDNY. They responded to a 7:22am call to find 14 patients with minor injuries and one with serious injuries. 10 patientshave been taken to Coney Island and Kings County Hospital, with five treated on scene.

A spokesman for the FDNY says a firecracker may have been involved, though he cannot 100% confirm. However neighbor Kerri MacDonald, who lives nearby, was told by a reporter that a student may have set off fireworks inside the bus.

  1. Rat poisen in the teacher’s water bottle, firecrachers on a school bus. What will the students of NYC’s education system think of next?

  2. Apparently they were going to Brooklyn Dreams Charter School on Parkville Avenue between Ocean Parkway and E 8th Street.
