Second employee suspended in death of autistic Oceanside man

LANGHORNE, Pa. - A home for people with disabilities has suspended a second employee following the death of an autistic man originally from Oceanside who was left in a hot van after a trip to a suburban Philadelphia theme park, a local newspaper reported.

Bryan Nevins, 20, was a resident at the Woods Services treatment home in Langhorne. He was not deemed missing until a nurse looked for him to give him medication at about 4 p.m. Saturday.

Nevins had returned with two counselors and three other clients around noon from a brief trip to nearby Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pa.

Woods Services said Tuesday that a second residential counselor who chaperoned clients on the trip has been suspended, the Bucks County Courier Times reported.

Officials previously announced the suspension of a counselor who served as the van driver.
