Boy who died after Fairfax Co. school bus ride was accompanied by 2 adults

WASHINGTON — Two adults were on board a Fairfax County school bus where a student died after suffering a “medical emergency” Thursday.

The student was the only child on the bus, but John Torre with the Fairfax County school system said a bus attendant was present along with the driver.

Fairfax County Fire and EMS responded to a 911 call on Dulles Station Road in Herndon, Virginia, just before 2 p.m. Thursday, September 6, investigators said, but the boy was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Investigators cannot say how old the boy was or what school he was being transported from. Police are working with the Fairfax County School board in the ongoing death investigation.
