Disabled NYC girl, 13, pushed from moving school bus

A disabled 13-year-old girl is recovering after being pushed from a moving school bus in New York City.

The incident happened Friday in Brooklyn.

The Daily News reports that a boy tossed the girl out the back door of the bus and into oncoming traffic. The News says she suffered a broken collarbone and was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

The girl rides a city school bus to the Brooklyn Children's Center, a private school for disabled students.

The Department of Education says the boy who pushed her faces disciplinary action and will be switched to a different bus route.
