A young boy in Michigan grabbed the steering wheel of a school bus and hit the brakes, bringing the vehicle to a safe stop on a busy road after the driver had passed out, authorities said.
“Someone call 911. Now!” Dillon Reeves shouted to dozens of other children on the bus in the Detroit area.
Dillon was hailed a hero: He stopped the bus as it was veering towards oncoming traffic.
The incident was recorded on a video camera just above the driver.
The video shows the driver fanning herself with a baseball cap and informing the transportation office that she needs to pull over.
Seconds later, Dillon jumped into action, hitting the brake pedal and clutching the steering wheel.
Dillon declined to speak to reporters but his parents, Steve and Ireta Reeves, were proud.
“We’ve got a little hero,” Dillon’s father said. “He’s been on my lap driving country roads, pulling into driveways since about four years old… He’s a good driver.”
