Police say Daniel Fernandez was among 65 teens aboard the double-decker bus Friday night as it crossed the George Washington Bridge from New York City on the way to a party in New Jersey. He was fatally stuck when the bus passed under a highway overpass.
The 16-year-old who lived in Queens was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Fernandez's English teacher was in tears Saturday when she learned he died. She says he was an "adorable, low-key kid" with a sweet smile and lots of friends who was popular with girls.
