Bus Driver Can’t Believe What This 4th Grader Did While She Was Driving

A Texas school bus driver says one of her students helped her avoid an accident, and she's calling him her 'little hero.' The driver almost passed out behind the wheel, but thankfully the quick-thinking child stepped in.

Judy Steele was driving a school bus full of 50 children when something went wrong. She pulled over to drop off some kids, and was struck with a sudden illness.

“I looked up. When I looked back down, everything just kind of started to spin. I grabbed the wheel, put the brake on, and pulled the air brake. I kind of leaned forward to see if I could get cool from the fan,” she said.

That's when Dae'reon Durham, 9, jumped in to lend a hand. He noticed something was wrong with the bus driver and jumped to her side.

“Ms. Judy was at the wheel. She had a lot of sweat on her face,” he said. “I care about people I want to know if they're all right,” said the young man.

Durham kept the other kids behind the line as he patted Steele's back and kept her awake. He then alerted people at a nearby bus stop of a medical emergency.

Steele was suffering from heat exhaustion, sinus infection and vertigo. She spent a couple of days in the hospital, but thanks to Durham, everything turned out alright.
