CCSD middle school student taken to hospital after air conditioning breaks on charter bus

Charleston County News

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Officials stated that one student from C.E. Williams Middle School was transported by EMS Friday afternoon in Mount Pleasant. 

Director of Communications and Technology Andy Pruitt stated that they do not normally discuss the medical status of students, but the first responders at the scene did not report to that any child was suffering from a seizure.

The student who was transported was part of a group from the school that was returning from a class trip to Myrtle Beach, Pruitt added.

The statement added that ACW Limo provided four buses. On the way back from Myrtle Beach, the air conditioning in one of the buses started to malfunction. 

The caravan stopped in Georgetown, and the students and staff were consolidated into the three remaining vehicles with working A/C. However, passengers on a second bus eventually reported they were feeling warm, and one student required medical attention, according to officials.

That bus stopped in Mount Pleasant and EMS was called. 

School and district staff will review this incident and determine if there are any changes that need to take place for out-of-town class trips.
