Runaway School Bus.jpgSmart thinking and quick moves prevented a potential disaster in Saranac, N.Y. as a bus driver carrying 25 school children suddenly turned ill and was unable to drive.


Three Verizon field technicians were heading to their next job, driving behind school bus #196, when they watched with growing alarm as the bus swerved in increasing arcs across the road.


They immediately took action, and a scary situation for a busload of students could have turned from bad to worse had it not been for one brave student and three Verizon technicians. No students were harmed and the bus driver, who was taken to a nearby Medical Center, is doing well.
