10-year-old Missouri boy dies after tripping, falling under school bus

A child died after being run over by a school bus on Friday morning in southeast Missouri.

Sgt. Parrott with the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Zjequaliln Cody had missed the school bus and was running alongside that bus to get the driver's attention.

"And he apparently slipped, fell, tripped, whatever and went under the bus and was struck by the rear dual wheels of the bus", Parrott said.

Zjequaliln was pronounced dead at the Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center.


The Missouri Highway Patrol says Zjqeualiln had just moved into the school district within the last 10 days.

Poplar Bluff R-I has raised over $1 million for St. Jude since the 1988/89 academic year when the school system first became involved in the Math-A-Thon fundraiser.

"We thank the Poplar Bluff School District for allowing the students to participate in the St. Jude Math-A-Thon each year, continuing to help advance the mission of the hospital of finding cures and saving children", stated Ann Culpepper of St. Jude's Enterprise Contact Center. Grief counseling professionals will continue to be available indefinitely where they are needed.

"Spend those extra minutes that you're on Facebook or you're busy doing something else.and spend that extra time with them.love them, talk to them, know them because there's a parent that's out there that's not going to have that chance anymore", she said.
