School trip bus leaves Dorney Park without 8-year-old

    The family of an 8-year-old Brooklyn girl is fuming after a bus left Pennsylvania without her during a field trip.

    WABC says dozens of children from Arista Prep School had gone to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom in Allentown on Thursday.

    Third-grader Kamyah John got separated from the other children after going to the bathroom.

    The rest of the group left without her.

    Her grandmother says Kamyah managed to borrow someone’s phone and called her mother for help.

    Her family contacted relatives who live near the amusement park.

    The school had no comment. The bus company said it was all a misunderstanding.
