CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Teachers called heroes for stopping out-of-control school bus
(CBS12) CHARLESTON, -- Some fast-acting teachers in South Carolina recently put the brakes on a very dangerous situation.
And authorities have now released the surveillance video of them in action.
The Charleston County School District says it started when a school bus went through a stop sign during a turn.
The momentum pushed the driver out of the seat.
School officials say a sign language interpreter grabbed the steering wheel and a fourth-grade teacher slammed on the brakes.
Their intervention stopped the school bus from crashing into a ditch.
School officials say no one was hurt, and the bus driver is no longer working for the district.
The district is calling the two teachers "heroes."
