Family faces life support decision for beaten school bus driver

THE BRONX - The family of a Bronx school bus driver in a coma after being attacked is facing the tough decision of whether to keep him on life support.

Police say 65-year-old Juan Del Valle?s bus hit Joseph Scott's car on Anthony Avenue and a heated argument ensued. Surveillance video allegedly shows Valle attempt to walk away before he's punched in the head and knocked to the ground.

Valle remains at St. Barnabas Hospital, and his family says doctors do not believe he will ever wake from the coma.

Scott is currently being held on $250,000 bail and is due back in court tomorrow.
