Mom: Autistic son put on wrong bus

An East New York mother says her son's school put him on the wrong bus Monday.

Helen Morell says her 5-year-old autistic son, Elijah, usually comes home after 3 p.m. However, on Monday, the bus never came. When she called the school, officials informed her Elijah was put on the wrong bus.

Morell says she received an apology, but feels that isn't enough.

The Department of Education say it is still investigating the incident.
