A seventh-grader saved his fellow students by taking control of the school bus’s steering wheel after the vehicle’s driver fainted while driving in Michigan, United States.

The bus driver found it difficult to drive after becoming unconscious, as seen in a security camera footage released by Warren Consolidated Schools, as reported by the BBC.

Just moments after radioing her message about feeling dizzy, the driver collapsed on her seat and suffered from a medical emergency.

The 13-year-old student on the bus, Dillon Reeves, rushed toward the driver and took control of the vehicle’s steering wheel while placing his foot on the brake.

The teenager then asks his fellow students to dial up emergency services for attending to the driver quickly, while those on the road nearby came to rescue the children in the midst of the incident and helped them get off the bus.

The driver was later hospitalised, as per reports.
