The head of a company that handles bus transportation for a southwestern Michigan school district says "it was totally wrong" for an employee to physically slam a boy inside the vehicle.
Ed Dollin says Heidi Mullin was fired after the incident Wednesday in the Galesburg-Augusta school district, about 50 miles southeast of Grand Rapids.
A video taken by a student and posted online shows a 7-year-old being slammed into the side of the bus by Mullin. Dollin, president of Cincinnati-based Auxilio, says the child had a pattern of extreme behavior on the bus, but he adds that's no excuse for what happened.
Mullin could not be reached for comment Friday. Her phone number was unlisted. Dollin said Mullin's job was to reduce rough behavior on the bus, not aggravate it.
