Elderly woman injured on bus

LAWTON_A disabled woman is fighting to recover from injuries tonight after her head got stuck in a wheelchair lift on a local bus.   Even worse the woman's caretaker says the bus driver didn't do anything to help.

The care taker says they were on the way to a doctors appointment on a Comanche Nation bus when she realized Brenda Wiersema was  unconscious and her head was somehow stuck in the lift they use to load wheelchair bound riders into the bus.

When the care take realized what was happening with her patient she says she asked the driver to pull off the road, call 911, and try and get help.  But she says that never happened and she wants the driver to be punished for it.

Wiersema's daughter Jerri Wyatt says there are a lot of unanswered questions about what happened to her mother.  Care taker Billie McCoy  says he ignored her and when he finally pulled over she asked him to run inside and get help, but he didn't do that either.

Wyatt says her mother has suffered a severe concussion, other head injuries, and now a heart attack.   She's shocked to see her mother like this.  Its too much for her.  I think they need different rules on the bus, stricter guidelines, more

Jerri Wyatt  says her mother is still on a ventilator and in critical condition.  We were unable to to contact the Comanche Nation for a comment.
