Driving requires intense concentration, thus, driving while you’re sleepy or intoxicated should be avoided at all costs.
It’s a well-known fact that it’s harder to operate larger vehicles, like trucks or buses. That being said, driving a school bus entails a lot of responsibility. It takes a lot of concentration to drive a huge lumbering vehicle filled with oftentimes unruly children.
However, the case was different in this particular viral video.
A CCTV camera captured footage of this school bus driver passing out while driving. His passengers, middle school students on their way home, were caught in a dangerous situation.
Luckily, these children reacted calmly and, instead of panicking, took control of the unmanned vehicle. One of the children, a boy named Jeremy, was able to grab hold of the steering wheel and regain control of the bus. Another child, who was unidentified, performed CPR on the unconscious driver. A few other children called 911 for help.
These little heroes saved themselves and the bus driver from certain doom!
