NORWICH, N.Y. (AP) — A fast-acting school bus driver is being lauded for grabbing a student by the back of his jacket as he was about to step out into the path of a car.
An inside-the-bus surveillance video posted on the Norwich City School District's Facebook page shows driver Samantha Call suddenly grabbing a student descending the stairs as a car speeds past on the shoulder.
Another student says "that was a good grab" after Call lays on the horn.
The upstate New York district said the video was taken April 26 on a state route about 40 miles north of the Pennsylvania state line.
The district says that the bus' red lights were flashing and that Call did an "outstanding" job.
