Family of Autistic Teen Who Died Trapped in Hot School Bus Wins $23.5 Million Settlement

A family in Whittier, California finally got some closure after they were awarded a $23.5 million settlement after their 19-year-old autistic son died after being left inside a hot school bus almost two years ago.

On September 11, 2015, Hun Joon “Paul” Lee was left inside a hot school bus after the driver failed to notice that he didn’t get off at his stop, according to KTLA. It was 96 degrees that day and all the windows were closed. A few hours later, the driver was notified that Lee was missing and he found him unresponsive in his bus — Lee was pronounced dead at 4:33 p.m.
