A four-year-old girl was left on a cold bus in Flushing for six hours Wednesday after the bus matron failed to check the vehicle for children after it arrived at a local elementary school, police said.

The girl was left alone on the bus around 8 a.m. until she was discovered at 2 p.m. by a bus driver starting his shift. The child reportedly fell asleep on the bus while traveling to her school–P.S. 21 on 26th Avenue.

The bus matron responsible for the children, Venecia Bisono, 38, was charged with failure to exercise control of a minor and reckless endangerment, police say.

The bus driver who discovered the child called the police, according to the NYPD.

The bus was reportedly operated by a private company, and not the Department of Education.
