MILTON, Wash. — A 13-year-old boy took the wheel of his school bus on Monday and was able to pull over safely after the driver became unconscious behind the wheel, The Associated Press reports.
Jeremy Wuitschick noticed that the driver was shaking and that his arms were flailing as the bus started to pull into a middle school. He also reportedly saw the driver’s eyes bulging and heard rasping noises.
Wuitschick took action. Onboard surveillance video shows him grabbing the wheel of the bus, and then he removed the keys from the ignition and turned the steering wheel to pull the bus over. Wuitschick and another student began performing chest compressions on the driver until adults arrived.
