"The students are from Channelview High School," said Mark Kramer, spokesman for the Channelview Independent School District. "At this time, details are limited. We are in contact with law enforcement in Alabama trying to obtain further information."
Dewayne Benson, 15, was on one of two buses traveling home from Walt Disney World, according to his sister, Sydney Benson. “He was asleep until the band director started screaming," Benson told ABC News.
