ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - More than $120,000 has been raised online for a Rochester-area bus monitor who was taunted and verbally abused by students.
The incident was captured in a 10-minute video posted to YouTube
showing 68-year-old Karen Klein trying her best to ignore the stream of profanity, insults and outright threats directed at her.
By early Wednesday, the video had gone viral.
The Greece bus monitor didn't report the incident, but school officials notified police when they learned of it. An investigation has been launched.
By Thursday morning, the international crowd funding site Indiegogo.com had raised more than $124,000 to send the grandmother on a vacation.
