NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – New Rochelle High School in Westchester County was under federal investigation Tuesday, for allegedly stranding two disabled students during a fire emergency.
As CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, there was a fire, specifically burning wires, near the school on January 31. When the fire bell rang, most students headed for the exits — except for two disabled students in wheelchairs.
They were kept on the third floor.
“They left my son behind,” said Jose Martinez, a parent at the school.
