Graceann Rumer just started driving two weeks ago.
She used the few driving skills she had to save a school bus full of students by grabbing the steering wheel as the driver collapsed Tuesday afternoon.
“I just realized that there’s no one driving this bus… I need to do something,” Rumer said.
The 17-year-old senior at Calvary Christian Academy in Northeast Philadelphia had been driving to school for practice a lot lately, but, luckily for all, on Tuesday she happened to take the bus.
Rumer and about three dozen other students were riding the bus home when the 51-year-old driver suddenly collapsed at about 3:30 p.m., falling from the driver’s seat on to the floor.
