(Scroll down for video) A lazy bus driver ordered a child to move a fallen power line out of her way because she did not want to get out of the bus.

The school bus driver of Pennsylvania, was fired after allegedly asking the 11-year-old child to move the live power line.

Driver Patricia Ryan, 60, asked Tyler Cunningham to get off the bus to move the wire that was knocked down by a goose, police said.

The children were on their way to Penn-Trafford Middle School near Pittsburgh. Surveillance video from the bus shows that Ryan stopped the bus before asking students to get off the bus and move the wire, police said.

Cunningham got off the bus and did as he was told. However, while doing so, he suffered minor burns to his right hand.

Ryan did not tell anyone about the incident. When school officials learned about the incident, they told the bus company that she can no longer drive their students.

As a result of her recklessness, Ryan was fired. She was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and recklessly endangering another person.
