Kid saves busload as driver faints

by Stephen Walsh, CNN

Take a busload of kids. Add speed, an unconscious driver, adrenaline and panic. Normally you’d have a recipe for disaster, but not this time. It happened Monday morning as students were being driven to Surprise Lake Middle School in Milton, Washington. Seventh-grader Jeremy Wuitschick saw the driver lose consciousness and sprang into action.

The News Tribune newspaper reports the driver is listed in grave condition at a Tacoma-area hospital.

Watch the video to see surveillance video of the entire incident and hear Wuitschick explain how he was able to guide the bus to safety.
