In April, a school bus driver in Milton, Wash. lost consciousness while driving students to school. In a flash, 13-year-old Jeremy Wuitschick (pictured left, courtesy of Fifefreepress.com) jumped up from his seat to take control of the wheel. “I ran up, grabbed the wheel … I turned it to the right, took it on the side of the road [and] took the keys out of the ignition," Wuitschick (pictured on the left with classmate Johnny Wood) told local news station King5. When the bus slowed down, 12-year-old Johnny Wood came to the front and started performing CPR on the driver. While the driver died several days later, the two young heroes are credited with saving the lives of their Surprise Lake School classmates who were on the bus.
