The photos and video of a mangled yellow school bus are among the most horrifying images from a deadly truck attack on a bike path near the World Trade Center.
One of the two students on the bus when the attacker's truck broadsided it remained hospitalized Wednesday. Police say the other student was examined and sent home from a hospital with no significant injuries.
A driver and an attendant also were on the bus but suffered no serious injuries.
Police say the truck driver ran down cyclists and pedestrians Tuesday before smashing into the bus.
A passer-by who shot video that's been posted on social media shouts, "Oh, my God! Oh, my God. Horror." The video shows firefighters rescuing youngsters from the crumpled bus.
It's still not clear what school the students and staff were from; a Department of Education spokeswoman said FERPA privacy laws prevent officials from disclosing what school they attend. However, Stuyvesant High School, P.S. 89 and I.S. 289 are all in the immediate area.
In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2017
We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere. Enough!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2017

As students returned to school Wednesday, many were still traumatized, according to caregivers and parents who spoke to News 4.
