Diaper odor gets mom, baby kicked off Seattle bus

SEATTLE (AP) -

A woman is complaining to the public transit authority that a driver kicked her off a bus in Seattle because of her baby's stinky diaper.

The woman, Nichole Hakimian, tells KOMO (http://is.gd/12kPyR ) that she was taking her son to a clinic Tuesday because of his diarrhea. She says the Metro Transit driver asked her to get off because the smell was too much for everyone else on the bus.

The woman says she found a place to change the diaper and caught another bus to the clinic.

Metro spokesman Jeff Switzer says it's investigating the complaint. He says Metro's goal is to balance rider comfort and good customer service, and this may be a unique situation.
