You have got to see this as it is TRULY AWESOME!! Kids amaze me at how able they can be in times of crisis.
Apparantly the bus was on its way to Surprise Lake Middle School when the substitute driver became incapacitated.
Seventh grader Jeremy Wuitschick was on the bus and said the driver let go of the wheel and started flailing his arms.
“I knew something was wrong,” he said.
Wuitschick said he got up and grabbed the wheel, turned the bus toward the side of the road and turned off the ignition.
“It was pretty scary,” Wuitschick said. “It was all happening really quickly.”
Video from a security camera aboard the bus shows another student helping Wuitschick with the wheel as the bus came to a stop outside of Discovery Primary School, which is adjacent to Surprise Lake Middle School.
You can watch the actual footage here:
John McCrossin, director of student programs for the Fife School District, was driving behind the bus when he noticed the bus veer off to the side of the road.
He ran onto the bus after it stopped and found the driver unconscious and not breathing. The kids told McCrossin they already called 911, so he began performing CPR on the driver until police and medics arrived.
THIS IS AWESOME IN EPIC PROPORTIONS and Definitely the type of heros we like here at the feel good depot.
They took the moving bus to the side of the road, turned off the ignition, called 911 and, and even started CPR before being replaced by an adult.
YOU ALL FREAKING ROCK!!!!!!
BTW, HE LIVED!!!!!
