On Thursday 16 Elul an Egged bus driver on the Yerushalayim number 36 line did a sweep of the bus after completing a run as required. He found that a baby carriage with a two-year-old inside was left on the bus.
The driver notified police and a patrol car was dispatched. Police took the child to the Russian Compound station and Magen David Adom was summoned to check the condition of the child. The child was found to be okay.
Police are questioning the mother what happened and how she forgot her child on the bus.
The woman, a 32-year-old chareidi mother told police she did not forget her child at all. She explained she got off the bus with both arms full of shopping and bags and placed them on the sidewalk. When she turned around to get her stroller off the bus the driver sped off, leaving her there and her child on the bus.
