Pupils were saved from a potential road accident thanks to the fast actions of a 13-year-old boy in the USA

Jeremy Wuitschick was the only child on the bus to notice the bus driver pass out at the wheel, his fast action resulted in the bus coming to a safe stop on the side of the road preventing what could have been a fatal accident.

Jeremy quickly jumped up and grabbed the wheel when he noticed the driver slump in his seat and start to make unsual noises, his reaction was to take the keys out of the ignition.

When he was asked how he knew what to do Jeremy said he had read it in a book about super heroes where a guy was told to remove the keys from the ignition and that’s what came to his mind.

Other students on board called 911 while Jeremy and another student tried to give the driver CPR in his seat.

The driver was taken to hospital in critical condition by paramedics.

The students were saved that day by an extraordinary boy who was quoted as saying afterwards “I didn’t think, I just did it”.
