Center suspends 2nd worker in autistic man's death
LANGHORNE, Pa. - July 28, 2010 -- A residential center for people with disabilities has suspended a second employee following the death of a 20-year-old autistic man found in a hot van after a trip to a suburban Philadelphia theme park.
Twenty-year-old Bryan Nevins, a resident at the Woods Services treatment home, was not deemed missing until a nurse looked for him to give him medication around 4 p.m. Saturday.
Nevins had returned with two other counselors and three other clients around noon from a brief trip to nearby Sesame Place in the suburb of Langhorne, Pa.
Woods Services said Tuesday that a second residential counselor who chaperoned clients on the trip has been suspended.
Officials previously announced the suspension of a counselor who served as the van driver.
