Bus driver fired after yanking girl to ground

March 3, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A bus driver in Washington is out of a job after surveillance video showed him yanking a 6-year-old girl to the ground.

The driver is heard in the video yelling at kids to sit down, and then he grabs the girl's backpack and pulls her to the floor.

He tells the kids that's what would happen if he slammed the brakes while they were out of their seats.

The driver admits he gave into frustration and has already turned in his resignation, but the state is still reviewing his record.

The girl was shaken up, but she was not hurt.
