Advocates want more supervision aboard party buses

SURREY (NEWS1130) – There’s a call for more supervision aboard party buses, in light of the death of a teen in Surrey last weekend.

The sister of a girl who died a few years ago is arguing the buses are a dangerous environment for children.

Danielle Raymond says her heart sank when she heard news of the death of 16-year old Ernest Azoadam. “I don’t want to shut down the buses, I just want to change the way they run their business.”

Raymond’s 16-year old sister Shannon died in 2008 after taking ecstasy while out with friends on a party bus.

She says there needs to be more supervision. “They’re in an environment that everybody knows, they picked that bus because they want to get drunk and possibly do drugs on the bus.”

The deaths seem to have had an impact on one company that is promising change.

The coroner’s service is looking into the latest death.
