“12-year-old drives school bus”
A seventh-grader in Michigan is being called a hero after he safely stopped his school bus after the driver passed out.
At 3 pm last Wednesday, a bus driver called her office to say she was feeling dizzy and needed to pull the bus over.
As she slowed the bus down in preparation to stop, she lost consciousness, and the bus was still moving.
Then, Dillon Reeves, sitting about five rows back, sprang into action.
He threw his backpack down, ran to the front of the bus, grabbed the steering wheel and slowly applied the brakes before the bus could veer into oncoming traffic.
Once the bus was stopped, Dillon yelled to his classmates, “Someone call 911. Now!”
“This was an extraordinary act of courage and maturity on his part,” school superintendent Robert Livernois said later.
Dillon received a special award from his school.
