Queensland police have charged two women for allegedly leaving a toddler on a bus near Rockhampton for six hours in early May.
Just before 4 p.m. Tuesday, police announced that two Gracemere women had been charged with aggravated assault.
Three-year-old Neveah Austin made a miraculous recovery after being found in critical condition on a kindergarten bus in Gracemere.
The women, aged 30 and 31, allegedly picked up Neveah around 8.30am on May 4 and drove to a daycare center in Gracemere, where they parked the bus and left her there.

Another employee was reportedly driving the van to a Gracemere school at around 2:45 p.m. and saw Nevaeh unconscious in the back of the bus.
Temperatures had soared to almost 30C the day she was left in the van.
She was taken to the center, where staff began CPR and called emergency services.
Neveah was taken to Rockhampton Base Hospital in critical condition and then flown to Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane.
A few days later, her grandmother, Pamela Parker, appeared on morning TV shows to say Neveah was “up, smiling, and eating ice cream.”
“She yells, squeaks and laughs, sticks her tongue out — she’s great at it,” Ms. Parker said.
Since then she has made an amazing recovery and returned home.
The two accused women are due to appear at Rockhampton Magistrates Court on July 26.
