A school-bus driver was charged with aggravated child abuse after allegedly pushing a special-needs child off the bus.
The Florida State Attorney's Office released a video Wednesday of a Tampa school-bus driver allegedly pushing an 8-year-old special-needs student off a bus with her foot.
WPTV.com reported bus driver Stephanie Wilkerson, 41, was charged with aggravated child abuse in October.
A video of the incident was taken from inside the bus. The girl fell and broke her ankle, WPTV said.
Tampa Bay Online reported that Wilkerson was driving the bus to Tampa Bay Boulevard Elementary School on the morning of Sept. 28.

A spokeswoman for the school district told TBO that the driver was removed from her job Oct. 1.http://news.msn.com/us/video-of-driver-allegedly-pushing-child-off-bus-released
