The look on the little fellow's face says it all - those poor kids were scared to death.

Kudos to a young man who did what he had to do

Great kid! Of course, they’ll probably charge him with driving without a license and charge the kid who did the CPR with practicing medicine without a license.

And the school suspended the kid for driving without a license.

“And the school suspended the kid for driving without a license.”

I was thinking the same.

Both kids need to be taken to court...one for driving without a license and the other for practicing medicine without a license.

They both need to go to jail for a long, long time.

(sarc/indended, but that is how screwed up the U.S. is today.)

Good for these two children. They need to be rewarded in a very large way. They saved a bus full for children. They are our young heroes.

Because licenses save lives. /s

Local story, just a couple miles from me.
Milton is a pretty hilly area, good job by the kid! He should get the key to the City!

Actually, when you drive around Milton, the one question that keeps coming up is “Where is Milton?”

Suburban Federal Way.

I wish there were some way to figure out whether the parents of these two boys are conservatives. I just assume they are.

I quit using the sarcasm tag. If folks don’t get the sarcasm just by reading - but then, as you said ....
