Forgiveness From Mother of Louisiana Boy Killed by School Bus

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

The heartbroken mother of a 6-year-old Louisiana boy hit and killed by his school bus is finding forgiveness in her grief. 

Brenden Houston had tied his shoes together on the bus and when got off, he bent down in front of the bus to untie the shoes and was hit. 

But instead of lashing out, his mother Jennifer Houston says it is a tragic accident. According to KTAL 6, Jennifer says "He wasn't paying attention because he was in his own world. That's how he lived. He didn't cause it, the bus driver didn't cause it, all the things surrounding it didn't cause it...It happened, it was an accident, and we'll never get him back, but he'll be in our hearts forever." 

The grieving mother spoke with KTAL, which you can see HERE
