Bus Driver Saves Kids From Burning Bus, “It’s My Job to Save Them”
A school bus in Maryland caught fire on Monday afternoon with 20 elementary school kids on board. It happened in College Park, just outside D.C.
The bus driver was Reneita Smith, and she immediately started getting the kids off the bus, one-by-one. Then, even though she thought they were all out, she ran back into the burning bus to make sure no one got left behind.
