In a heartwarming incident, a 7th class Michigan-based boy became hero of the day, thanks to his quick thinking in a school bus as the driver fell unconscious. The young boy took control of the bus, made it come to a halt, and in a calm and assertive tone that can put adults to shame, asked people to reach out to emergency responders via 911.

Dillon Reeves, a quick-thinking and astute student at Carter Middle School, was able to avert a disaster as he prevented the bus from crashing after he realized that the driver was experiencing a medical emergency while transporting the kids home near Detroit.

According to Warren Consolidated Schools Superintendent Robert Livernois, the bus driver “became lightheaded and lost consciousness while the bus was traveling on Masonic Boulevard near Bunert Road.” But Dillon was not about to let the situation escalate into a tragedy. He sprang into action, quickly moving to the front of the bus to take control and bring it to a safe stop, without incident.

The actions of this young hero not only prevented a catastrophe but also earned him much praise and admiration from school officials, the police, and his community. The authorities are planning to hold a press conference, to give more details of the account, and insight into the driver’s health.

The Facts of the Matter

They say that age is just a number, and the recent heroic actions of a young Michigan boy prove this adage to be true. In a stunning display of bravery and quick thinking, this seventh grader became a true hero when he took control of his school bus after the driver suddenly fell ill.

Despite his young age, this boy proved that bravery knows no bounds and that sometimes, it is the most unlikely of heroes who rise to the occasion and save the day.

66 Students Were On Board

According to reports, the school bus hurtled down the road with 66 students on board when the situation took a turn for the worse. With remarkable speed, the 7th class student sprang into action and shouted for someone to call 911.

His clear-headedness was a ray of hope amidst the chaos, and he immediately took control of the situation from his seat five rows behind the driver. Superintendent Robert Livernois later confirmed that the driver had already alerted the transportation base about her condition, but it was Dillon’s quick thinking that ultimately saved the day.

“A quick-thinking 7th-grade male student saw the driver in distress, stepped to the front of the bus and helped bring it to a stop without incident. The Warren Police and Fire Departments responded very quickly, tended to the driver, and the students were safely loaded onto a different bus to make their way home,” Superintendent Robert Livernois wrote on Facebook.
