Final patient from I84 Bus Crash Released from WMC

Hospital staff gathered last month to give a send-off to Aidan Sullivan. The 14-year-old Farmingdale High School student was the final student who was hospitalized for injuries sustained in the I-84 bus crash to be discharged from WMCHealth’s Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.  

Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital celebrated Aidan’s discharge with a “clap out” ceremony attended by dozens of hospital representatives, many of whom were involved in the care of Aidan and his schoolmates. Aidan plays the sousaphone in the school marching band. His family were escorted home by members of the Nassau County Police Department.

More than 40 people were on the bus that crashed on the Interstate near Middletown, NY. Twelve passengers were under the care of WMCHealth’s Westchester Medical Center and Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.  All bus accident patients now have been treated and released.
