In Florida, USA a school bus driver tried to slam on the brakes a few miles from the local elementary school. The bus was full of children on their way home from school when it slid off the road and tipped into a lake.
«The bus was out of control. I saw the driver hit the brakes, but nothing happened,» recalls 10-year-old Nicholas Sierra. As if that weren’t terrifying enough, the lake was full of alligators—what a nightmare!
Nicholas saw that his classmates were terrified and panicked, so he moved into action. He got a young girl on his back and carried her to the shore.
Then he turned around, swam back to the bus, and brought another two kids to safety.
Amazing what a 10-year-old can do. Thank goodness Nicholas was there and so gosh darn brave!
