There is good news now and then.

UPDATE: Not all good news as the bus driver has passed away. Apparently it was a heart attack. I’m Sorry to hear that.

MILTON, Wash. – A middle school student is being credited with saving a school bus full of kids after he drove the bus to safety after the driver passed out behind the wheel.

13-year-old Jeremy Wuitschick told Q13 Fox he was riding the bus to school Monday morning when he noticed something was wrong with the driver.

"He starts acting all funny," he said. "His eyes are bulging and he is twitching in his chair."

Surveillance video shows Jeremy’s split-second reaction. The teen raced out of his seat and grabbed the wheel as the bus veered towards the sidewalk. He was then able to bring the bus to a stop and take the keys out of the ignition…

…Though Jeremy is being credited with saving the students and the driver from serious injury, he says he wishes he could have done more to help. He told Q13 Fox the incident has inspired him to learn CPR.

"When something major happens, I look back to see if there’s something I could’ve done better," he said.

Wish more people did this.

Good Job kid.
