Teen dies after sticking head out of emergency hatch

Posted on Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 at 8:01 pm    

The horrific death of a 16 year-old boy from Queens made national headlines this weekend after he was fatally injured when he opened the emergency hatch on the top level of a double-decker bus on Friday.

As the teen opened the hatch and stuck his head out, the party bus carrying 65 teenagers to a Sweet 16 party went under a highway underpass near the George Washington Bridge. Several teenagers on the bus saw the gruesome scene and many were covered in his blood.

Law enforcement says the teenager suffered traumatic head injuries, the New York Post reports. The company who owns the party bus plans on conducting an internal investigation.
