Crazy Video WATCH: Driver Investigated After Father Gets Dragged by School Bus
A school bus driver is under investigation after terrifying video purportedly showed a man being dragged by his vehicle.
The nightmare unfolded on Thursday afternoon, when James Burdett said he went to pick up his daughter after school.
“I physically got in the front of the bus and said, 'Please give me my daughter, I need to take her home.' And he just pressed on the gas,” he told Fox 25.
Burdett said he quickly “grabbed onto the mirror” and “was holding on for dear life” as neighbors yelled, “Stop the bus!”
“I thought I was done. I thought that was it,” he said.
Burdett said his little girl, who is 5 years old, was crying and screaming for the driver to stop as her father was dragged for about two blocks.

Thankfully, Burdett was not seriously hurt.
The driver has now been placed “on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation,” Boston Public Schools said in a statement.
"The Boston Public Schools does not tolerate any kind of behavior that places people’s lives in danger or compromises public safety,” they added.
