'Little hero:' Boy stops Michigan school bus with ill driver
April 28, 2023
WARREN, Mich. (AP) — A boy grabbed the steering wheel on a school bus and hit the brakes, bringing the vehicle to a safe stop on a busy Detroit-area road after the driver had passed out, authorities said.
"Someone call 911. Now!" seventh-grader Dillon Reeves shouted to dozens of other middle-school kids on the bus Wednesday.
Dillon was hailed as a hero: He stopped the bus as it was veering toward oncoming traffic.
"In my 35-plus years of education, this was an extraordinary act of courage and maturity on his part," said Robert Livernois, superintendent of Warren Consolidated Schools.
