Couva Health Facility

Four year old Isaiah Hazel was found dead at the back of a private school bus this afternoon.

The driver of the bus collapsed following the discovery and remains warded at the Couva Health Facility.

According to reports, Hazel was one child in a trip of school children who were supposed to be taken to the Morning Star Early Childcare School at Southern Main Road, California.

Hazel, apparently, never got off the bus. It is believed that he fell asleep while on the way to school.

Police say the driver of the bus returned home, parked and secured the bus and went about her business with the child still inside.

Around 3pm, the driver returned to see the young child laying motionless on the floor of the vehicle. His body bore no visible marks of violence.

He was rushed to the Couva Health Facility where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Inspector Figaro from the Homicide Bureau visited the scene and is continuing investigations. 

An autopsy to determine the child's cause of death will be performed tomorrow.
