8-year-old & 9-year-old Students Stop Bus After Driver Collapsed
ATKINSON, N.H. (AP) — Police say two elementary school students came to the rescue after their bus driver collapsed behind the wheel in New Hampshire.
Authorities say 8-year-old Nolan Barry and 9-year-old Thomas MacKeen were among the five students onboard when their bus driver collapsed while approaching a stop in Atkinson Tuesday.
Both boys ran to the front of the bus and tried to revive the driver. When she didn't respond, Nolan says he searched the bus controls and found the emergency brake.
The boys then banged on the windows of the bus and caught the attention of a nearby parent who called 911.
The bus driver was hospitalized for treatment, where she is listed in stable condition.
The boys tell WCVB-TV they feel like heroes, but "not Superman-like heroes."
