SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A Springfield mother is demanding responsibility be taken after she says her daughter suffered a seizure on a Springfield Public School school bus and was not properly cared for.
Elizabeth Thurston says her daughter Aubree is five-years-old and has Down syndrome. She also says that she wasn't even made aware of the incident until two hours later.
"They didn't bring her home they didn't get her medical help they just kept going," she said.
Aubree takes the bus to a preschool program at Ridgeview Elementary School during the week.
Thurston says she's mad, sad, and confused.
"Anybody who has a child, or doesn't have a child; it's just compassion you know, you see a child not breathing and you call 9-1-1," she continued.
Thurston says something similar happened back in December and she wasn't notified until two days later.
She said her faith has been shattered and while she says she doesn't know exactly what she's doing next, what she does know is that for the time being her daughter will not be returning to Ridgeview.
She is also saying that she's left with more questions than answers.
"I was trying to ask (the school) how long what she out, what color was she, what was she doing before and they're not cooperating with me."
She says she has spoken to the superintendent and transportation for Springfield Public Schools and gotten no answers.
KEZI has reached out to both the school district and transportation for the district asking for any response to Thurston's concerns and they have not commented.
