Students help save bus driver after collapse

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 slowly approaching a stop in Atkinson on 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 parent, who called 911.

The bus driver was hospitalized in stable condition.

The boys tell WCVB-TV they feel like heroes but “not Superman-like heroes.”
