'He could have been blinded' - mum's anger over toddler's fall as bus suddenly pulled out

'He could have been blinded' - mum's anger over toddler's fall as bus suddenly pulled out

ACCIDENT: Kelly Watts and son Dylan

NEAR MISS: Dylan’s injuries

First published in News by

A MOTHER from Christchurch says her three-year-old son is lucky he wasn’t blinded after falling over on a bus when the driver suddenly pulled out.

Kelly Watts and her son Dylan caught the 1C Yellow Bus service from Tuckton Bridge after the youngster had finished nursery.

But as the toddler made his way to his favourite seat at the back of the bus, the driver pulled out and the tot was flung onto the floor.

“The bus driver didn’t wait for him to sit down and pulled out straight away,” she explained. “My son went flying.”

Miss Watts said her son, who suffered cuts and bruises to his face, was lucky he didn’t injure his eye.

She said: “He was walking towards the back seat and there’s a board at the bottom with five screws in it. If he had hit one of them it would have gouged his eye out. The bus driver said sorry but he wasn’t fazed by it at all”

The toddler was left shaken but has made a full recovery following his ordeal.

“He was hysterical at the time,” Miss Watts said.

The mother of one is now calling upon bus drivers to ensure children are sat down before pulling out.

She said: “They wait for elderly people to sit down. It should be the same for kids.”

She added: “I’ve written a letter to the head of the bus company and am waiting for a reply.”

Jenni Wilkinson, head of marketing at Yellow Buses, said: “This matter is now the subject of a claim from Kelly Watts and is, therefore, with our insurers. In view of this we're unable to comment further.”

Sit the child closer to the front then. Could have been blinded. Wasn't. Not surprised there's been a money grapping claim. Hold your kids hand. Sit him down quicker for safety. Don't expect everyone to wait because your son wants his favourite seat right at the back. I'm sorry the boy got hurt but the mother is just as much to blame. I'm not a doctor but I'm fairly sure the kid will be fine. Or will he be ' traumatised ' now as well?

So the matter is the subject to a Personal Injury claim, yet she still goes to the papers. I'm sure it was very shocking, but why did she not have hold of him. All to quick to blame other people rather than take responsibility that the fault may well have lain at her own door. She will be complaining next that bus fares have risen and that will in part because of her spurious claim and others like her.

Agree with the mum's moan/complaint to the bus co. as maybe the driver could have been a bit more careful.

Also agree with those who are saying he should have been held by the hand or whatever. Easier said than done sometimes when you are carrying bags, buggies, negotiating a narrow aisle on the bus and other passengers won't move out of your way etc. but nonetheless, this is a parent's duty.

The bit I don't agree with is the claim. It's a bit over the top and unnecessary. I'm sure the driver wasn't intentionally neglectful and as it's also mum's responsibility her kiddie is safe, I think the claim side of things is silly.

If you all read it properly you would have seen that there were screws sticking out of where he hit his face, if one of them had caught his eye it would have been a lot worse.
The bus driver should have waited, seriously how long does it take for a child to run up the middle of the bus to get to his seat. A matter of seconds. A bus driver should wait until everyone is say down child or not. 'Being late for work' what a shame, so you woul rather a child was hurt. And your slagging Kelly off as a parent.
Dylan should be have a freedom of choice and sit where he wants, same as everyone else that pays their bus fare gets to choose. He's a child. Clearly none of you have ever got on a bus with a toddler, pushchair, and bags and trying to get your money out while holding a child's hands. Funny enough guys we are all human and not able to multitask with 5 or 6 jobs at the same time.
Go and be spiteful to people that deserve it, Kelly was clearly doing the best she could in that situation, and deserves compo, completely wrong that a child has injuries to his face just because the driver was too impatient to wait 3 seconds. Let's just hope It doesn't happen to one of your children, if it does maybe you would feel the same anger as Kelly does.
Hope Dylan is ok, and u sue that bus company and get what Dylan deserves

If you were to read it properly it actually says
“He was walking towards the back seat and there’s a board at the bottom with five screws in it. If he had hit one of them it would have gouged his eye out."
Does not state they were sticking out And I doubt that there just so happened to be 5 screws sticking out were he hit his face. It's public transport not Dylan transport. Why should the driver have to wait for him to get his "favourite seat" there's seats at the front for kids and elderly and if she had that much shopping why did she sit at the back and not at the front where she can put her shopping instead of taking up more seats which other bus users pay the fayre for?

Just a compo claim, it's a cut on his face, it will heal. Are you gunna try and claim when he's running down the road and trips on the pavement?

The child has superficial injuries so please explain why they deserve to put a claim in? What is there to claim for? Injuries... No as there were no last damage. The bus driver apologised, what more do you want. This is what is wrong with the world and people wonder why things cost so much these days, its because of eronious comp claims that are completely unecessary.

I'm afraid the minute someone goes to the press with a story like this they are immediately exposing themselves and their children to public ridicule. Maybe she thinks she can take it, or gets a buzz from seeing her picture in the paper; but why the child? The Echo has a lot to answer for by using this sort of item as 'news'.

I wouldn't 'rather a child was hurt', I'd rather the PARENTS of that child took responsibility for it and ensured it was seated safely as soon as possible rather than picking the furthest away seat because their little darling should sit wherever they choose. Part of being a parent is teaching your child valuable life lessons such as being considerate of the other people using the bus and sitting down safely ready for travel so you don't get hurt.

It's a parent's responsibility to look after their child and keep them safe and happy, no one elses.

Let us be realistic, we could not practically operate public buses if the vehicles had to be become or remain stationary every time someone is not seated on the bus, it's a basic and essential part of the operation that buses keep travelling for most of the time they are in service.

However this travelling tradition requires some intelligence, basic common sense and taking personal responsibility for our own welfare - and especially for those in our care. So I think thanks to the Echo we can all see where the problem here may have been.

What the hell has it got to do with you or anyone else if someone decides to make a claim?

Nothing illegal.
If people make too many claims the cost of the entire service goes up for everybody. A claim for an injury that will heal (quickly) without permanent damge is frivolous.

If he had a permanent injury, or one that would cost money for medication, dressings, lost work etc that would be a justifiable claim. What he has got is a minor injury that will probably need a bit of antiseptic ointment and will heal quickly, At worst he might need some antibiotics if it turns septic. Just check that his anti-tetanus jabs are up to date.

What he has learned is that if you're getting on a bus you should find a seat quickly or hold on tight. He's learned a simple childhood lesson that we all learn sooner or later. What he needs to be aware of is if something is just a minor inconvenience it's not worth worrying about.

Just tell the driver you're worried about the screws. He should get them checked out by the maintenance team. Do the decent thing and help the bus company before someone gets seriously injured and sues. You can't really sue because somebody /might/ have been seriously injured.

i get the bus almost everyday and every child that gets on it will run to the back or to a seat whilst the parent pays, there kids going on a bus is like going in a ride at a fair, now lets be fair how many people actually hold there childs hand whilest trying to pay something and holding bags of shopping? noone? of course! its very unfortunate that this little fella has hurt himself but, i can see were kelly is coming from buses always wait for the olderly to sit down but hardly ever waits for a parent and a toddler, its not fair, the bus should wait for everyone to sit down, i know ive felt like im going to fall when im trying to sit down and the bus drives away.
and for the combo she never asked for it, they offered and she accephted, who wouldnt!?! and why would the bus compang pay out if she was in the wrong?

instead of questiong one individuals parenting when all she wanted to do was to make the point that buses are infact dangorus and and should for evertone to be seated before pulling away.

and for everyone who has slated kelllys parenting have you kids never fallen over? shall we be horrid to you for not holden there hands! no there children theres things happen. just happens this would have been prevented if the bus driver would have waited for him to seat down.

I'm sure the bus's CCTV will prevail.

However, common sense says your getting on a bus, it's aim is to MOVE therefore get on - on hold on - sit down, and if they are, as it seems a regular bus user, they'll know exactly that before getting on.

These people would never survive a London bus or tube for one moment.

Also agree with those who are saying he should have been held by the hand or whatever. Easier said than done sometimes when you are carrying bags, buggies, negotiating a narrow aisle on the bus and other passengers won't move out of your way etc. but nonetheless, this is a parent's duty.

The bit I don't agree with is the claim. It's a bit over the top and unnecessary. I'm sure the driver wasn't intentionally neglectful and as it's also mum's responsibility her kiddie is safe, I think the claim side of things is silly.
The whole point of the seats immediately inside the doors are for mums with buggies or wheelchair users - she let her son wander off down the aisle on his own - if she was that worries about him she would either have held his hand and made him wait for her to walk with him - or made him sit down in the seats that are especially there for young mums with toddlers.

The bus driver was no doubt too busy watching the road and I imagine would have assumed the child's mother would be taking care of her own son. He's not driving a Creche for Heaven's sake!!

I hope the little guy's cuts soon heal and that his mother has learned a very valuable lesson at the pain of her little boy - if she doesn't want him to fall over on a moving vehicle, hold his hand or make him sit down in the first available seat ...... not rocket science but simple mothering ..... or at least it was in my day :o/

The bus driver should have waited, seriously how long does it take for a child to run up the middle of the bus to get to his seat. A matter of seconds. A bus driver should wait until everyone is say down child or not. 'Being late for work' what a shame, so you woul rather a child was hurt. And your slagging Kelly off as a parent.
Dylan should be have a freedom of choice and sit where he wants, same as everyone else that pays their bus fare gets to choose. He's a child. Clearly none of you have ever got on a bus with a toddler, pushchair, and bags and trying to get your money out while holding a child's hands. Funny enough guys we are all human and not able to multitask with 5 or 6 jobs at the same time.
Go and be spiteful to people that deserve it, Kelly was clearly doing the best she could in that situation, and deserves compo, completely wrong that a child has injuries to his face just because the driver was too impatient to wait 3 seconds. Let's just hope It doesn't happen to one of your children, if it does maybe you would feel the same anger as Kelly does.
Hope Dylan is ok, and u sue that bus company and get what Dylan deserves
Can they provide his mother with a little common sense and a sense of reality then as compensation?

I'm well aware of what a child is but I wouldn't saying running and playing is appropriate on a bus. That's what parks/front rooms/playgroups are for.

The bus driver drives a bus. He's had his training, qualified and his job is to ensure that everyone reaches the destination for which they have paid. A mother looks after children. Although no qualifications or training are necessary for the position, common sense and instinct are often the basics to begin with. My mother's instructions were always - go and find a seat and sit down whilst I pay - and we three kids did just that. I have 3 sons and not one has ever fallen nor injured themselves on a bus!

"The bus pulled away suddenly" - wasn't expecting that? Surely when you've been riding the buses for any length of time you must realize it pulls in and out at bus stops. As for Dylan having a choice in his seat, well he's 3 years old. He is incapable of making informed and balanced decisions of his own which is why we have parental guidance as part and parcel of having children.

The bus company did state that the letter was a claim and therefore it had been passed to the insurers. The bus driver apologized. What are you wishing to be compensated for exactly?

A sensible and fair post until you said 'compo is deserved' and then it all fell apart.

I must admit that the fun part of getting on the bus as a kid was when it set off before you had got to your seat, especially if you were making your way to the back seat. If you timed it right you could from the door to the seat in half a second.

Appreciate that the kid in this case was a bit young for that sort of malarkey and he probably wasn't expecting the bus to jolt, but these things happen, but glad he is ok.

How do we know the screws were sticking out? The story just says the board had screws in it? Presuming the child ran on ahead up the isle of the bus the driver would not have pulled away until the mother had paid so wouldn't his view looking back be restricted by the mother making him unable to see the boy? There is no law that everyone has to be seated, there is a certain capacity on busses for standing passengers. I'm sure the driver will try to be a little more aware in future as should be the mother and the child, i'm sure he's learnt now to hold onto the grab rails as he makes his way down the bus in future.
I think most peoples grievance is that the story claims that she is seeking compensation, theres no mention of it being openly offered to her? The boy has suffered no lasting damage, in fact its lucky she told her tale to the paper when she did as it looks like the scratch has nearly gone completely, if anything he has learnt a lesson. That should be the end of it, running to the paper telling tales won't do you any favours in the eyes of anyone on here or the bus company's insurance company and legal team.

Some parents do let their children run on ahead while they pay the fare - it's not a brilliant idea because of this very story but it happens whether YOU agree with it or not. But also, the bus driver should have used discretion and waited. I feel both parent and driver have contributed to the outcome of this situation equally by not using their discretion. Both have learnt a lesson. I don't agree with the personal attacks on the mother though, particularly reference to 'topping up benefits'. Usual sweeping generalisation vitriol.

The bus was packed and the only seats left where at the back I got my 3 year old nephew to go sit down while I paid but before I even got to walk away from the driver he pulled away my nephew still wasn't in a seat and went flying. Lucky for the driver he didn't hurt himself cuz he would have got more than a few angry words from me. They need to make sure everyone not just elderly and children are sat down before leaving. It states to not leave your seat when the bus is moving but they don't wait till your sat down before taking off again. It's no wonder I much rather get a taxi

I'd suggest using old fashioned reins or the modern version which are snazzy backpacks with a rein attached so you can catch them as necessary and know where they are, and teaching them to sit in the first empty seat. they find.

Good photo, let down only by the tyke not having crossed arms.

I was with the mother's 'story' until the last paragraph: “This matter is now the subject of a claim from Kelly Watts '

showing that she is trying to cash in on an injury that never happened.

Chances in Court: Zero.

So the matter is the subject to a Personal Injury claim, yet she still goes to the papers. I'm sure it was very shocking, but why did she not have hold of him. All to quick to blame other people rather than take responsibility that the fault may well have lain at her own door. She will be complaining next that bus fares have risen and that will in part because of her spurious claim and others like her.
She has zero chance of winning a claim. She thinks the paper will force the bus company to pay up. Now that it is printed, the bus company has nothing to lose. She is hopeless.

Ignore the judgmental weasels posting on here. They are mostly sad little creatures whose only enjoyment seems to be persecuting decent people.

Let's just hope It doesn't happen to one of your children, if it does maybe you would feel the same anger as Kelly does. Hope Dylan is ok, and u sue that bus company and get what Dylan deserves
The child has superficial injuries so please explain why they deserve to put a claim in? What is there to claim for? Injuries... No as there were no last damage. The bus driver apologised, what more do you want. This is what is wrong with the world and people wonder why things cost so much these days, its because of eronious comp claims that are completely unecessary. Dont like it, welkl dont get the bus, use what you were given and walk
What the hell has it got to do with you or anyone else if someone decides to make a claim?

Nothing illegal.
This is why public transport operators are required to have Public Liability and Public Service Vehicle insurance - for exactly this type of mishap. What difference does it make to you whether someone gets compensated or not - are you paying it out of your own pocket? No? Well mind your own business then.

Yes well done; some people are right to be proud.

Never worked in their life, get pregnant at 16, no father on the scene, accommodation paid for, bills, council tax, food, bus fare and treats paid for by someone else's work and will be for years and years to come and then given 15 mins of fame.

Life is sweet for some it seems.

Compensation isn't free money. Everyone pays, including the person getting it because it raises premiums and therefore costs. The article states the bus company could not comment because it was in the hands of the insurer. That does not sound like they just offered compensation. Blame the echo for that. Not that it makes a difference. Yes your son got injured. That's unfortunate, but if, as you say, you were offered compensation, the company apologised and your son is ok, what's the problem? Unfortunately, if you go to the press, you can't expect people to mind their own buiseness because you made it their business by going public. Glad your son is ok though. I'm sure he will get many more knocks as he gets older that could have been worse, that's growing up!

Nothing illegal.
Because in the end we all end up paying so have the right to have an opinion.
OK, so if your home caught fire and was badly damaged as a result, you wouldn't claim on your home insurance then I take it? Better make sure you drive extra carefully because you might have a motor insurance claim against you and ALL of our premiums will go up as a result won't they.

I'm pretty sure that's not the same as falling over and cutting your face. Which he looks perfectly fine by modelling in the pictures.

Really don't understand why she's claimed? And it states In the article she is trying to claim. Makes me laugh, if my mum claimed everytime I fell over as a kid id be pretty rich right now. It's gunna happen they fall over they are kids, what happens the next time he falls over? People do anything for money these days.

Nothing illegal.
This is why public transport operators are required to have Public Liability and Public Service Vehicle insurance - for exactly this type of mishap. What difference does it make to you whether someone gets compensated or not - are you paying it out of your own pocket? No? Well mind your own business then.
Not too clued up on how insurance works and how the cost is calculated and paid for then it seems?

Why not make it your business to find out before telling us what ours is?

Nothing illegal.
Because in the end we all end up paying so have the right to have an opinion.
OK, so if your home caught fire and was badly damaged as a result, you wouldn't claim on your home insurance then I take it? Better make sure you drive extra carefully because you might have a motor insurance claim against you and ALL of our premiums will go up as a result won't they.

Hypocrite!
You're right. If my home caught fire and was badly damaged of course I would claim on insurance. That's what it's for. On the other hand, if I cut myself in the kitchen I would not claim on the insurance. I'd call myself a ****ing idiot, stick a plaster on it and get on with my life.

I always drive carefully, not because I /might/ have a claim on my insurance, but because I have a duty to take care when driving so that I don't injure anyone or damage their property.

If someone else injures me I make a balanced judgement about whether a claim is justifiable or not. If it doesn't affect my work, or cost me anything I do not sue or claim because the incident has cost me nothing. Like all people who have been injured I mitigate my losses. It would be a different story if my injuries were severe, long-term, and/or debilitating (such as a damaged eye). A scratched cheek - no claim. It'll heal. A damaged eye - claim if it's not just a scratch that will heal without permanent loss of vision.

The reason the bus company offered Kelly a payment was, I'm sure, because it's easier and cheaper to make an offer rather than fight it. If she refused their offer she left them with no choice but to put it through their insurer. They will investigate the claim and might, or might not make an offer.

It states to not leave your seat when the bus is moving but they don't wait till your sat down before taking off again. It's no wonder I much rather get a taxi
Some of us on benefits can't afford bus fares, let alone a taxi. And before you (plural) start on the "another benefits scrounger" bit, I paid maximum rate income tax and national insurance for several years before my health went completely up the creek, so I no longer work.

Some parents do let their children run on ahead while they pay the fare - it's not a brilliant idea because of this very story but it happens whether YOU agree with it or not. But also, the bus driver should have used discretion and waited. I feel both parent and driver have contributed to the outcome of this situation equally by not using their discretion. Both have learnt a lesson. I don't agree with the personal attacks on the mother though, particularly reference to 'topping up benefits'. Usual sweeping generalisation vitriol.
Despite your low rating I agree with your last two sentences. Or do some shops in Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole and the surrounding area make a fortune from selling crystal balls or similar psychic devices?

The child has superficial injuries so please explain why they deserve to put a claim in? What is there to claim for? Injuries... No as there were no last damage. The bus driver apologised, what more do you want. This is what is wrong with the world and people wonder why things cost so much these days, its because of eronious comp claims that are completely unecessary. Dont like it, welkl dont get the bus, use what you were given and walk
What the hell has it got to do with you or anyone else if someone decides to make a claim?

Nothing illegal.
This is why public transport operators are required to have Public Liability and Public Service Vehicle insurance - for exactly this type of mishap. What difference does it make to you whether someone gets compensated or not - are you paying it out of your own pocket? No? Well mind your own business then.
Not too clued up on how insurance works and how the cost is calculated and paid for then it seems?

Why not make it your business to find out before telling us what ours is?
I worked for a large insurance firm for 2 years. You might know it MGI/ Zurich?

My point is people knocking her & making personal remarks.

The bigotry shown everyday on the ECHO site astounds me.

I hope she gets shedloads of money.

Actually it says there is a board with 5 screws on the floor, IF he had hit his face on it he could have gouged his eye out. So he didn't hit the board at all, just another 'could have' by the looks of it. Accidents happen, compensation isn't the answer to everything, I'm guessing the bus driver will be checking each time he pulls away now after this incident and Dylan will recover so I'd say lessons have been learnt so leave it at that.

Seriously! This is a three year old child and regardless of what the mother's circumstances are or are not. It means very little to this story. Bus drivers do pull out quite quickly sometimes and I catch the bus everyday and I am a fully grown adult with no one to watch me or hold my hand. And I have fallen over on a bus due to this and yes it hurt and I was holding on but when you are not expecting that quick jerk that a lot of drivers do i.e. the go to pull out and stop as another car has started to over take them. And as for the seating thing jeez! the fact of where he sat was not the issue!
I must say everyone is slating the mum about the claim. If you have a slight bump in your car that leaves no lasting damage do you not expect some sort of compensation if it wasn't your fault?

No I don't. It's sorted out with the insurance - or possibly the repair paid for by the miscreant. This compensation culture is awful. It's true, 'radix malorum est cupiditas' - Greed is the root of evils!
