Teen Using Restroom Falls Out Bus Window
Associated Press ^ | Feb. 7, 2006 | AP

Posted on 02/07/2006 8:31:49 PM PST by RippleFire

A New York City teenager fell out the window of a moving bus while using the restroom Tuesday and landed on the New York State Thruway.

State police said Jose Gonzales, 17, lost his balance when the chartered bus swerved to change lanes. It was unclear how fast the bus was going.

Gonzales was taken to Albany Medical Center for treatment. Police said he'll recover.

Gonzales fell onto the shoulder of the thruway near Exit 23 southbound.

He had been at the Capitol on Tuesday to lobby with a group on the issue of AIDS.

The latest report from the hospital is that Jose is still "holding his own".

I can just imagine the Albany Times Union headline tomorrow morning - which is why I don't subscribe.

Nah... he must have tried to moon the passers-by through the bus window - and lost his balance. "How just are Thy judgements, o Lord!", as Paride de Grassi wrote about 500 yrs ago.

Last time I used the facilities on a bus, that window was not big enough to eject me no matter how violent the swerve.

Was he in there alone?

State police said Jose Gonzales...

OK, excuse my ignorance, but I'm wondering - is "Jose Gonzales" the Hispanic equivalent of "John Smith"?

I want you to know I have not laughed this hard in a long time. I had a hard time breathing. Thanks for a great post.

I think the word "the" is superfluous in that sentence.

I have ridden on buses. None of the bathrooms had windows. Story seems odd.

I have found that it is absolutely impossible for me to use ANY washroom in ANY moving vehicle, be it bus, train, airplane, RV or what not. To quote Cheech Marin, "It gets stage fright, man".

Mine's already showing. I was just thinking that today when I walked on to an elevator and saw my reflection. The reflection did not match my minds eye image of myself. My inner dialog says 30-35, the reflection says something much older unfortunately.
