Bus driver who collapsed during school commute dies

MILTON, Wash. (AP) — A school bus driver whose heart attack resulted with his student charges taking over the wheel has died at a hospital in Washington state.

Fife School District Deputy Superintendent Jeff Short says 43-year-old Ryan Callis of Tacoma died Wednesday evening.

Bus footage shows 13-year-old Jeremy Wuitschick rushing down the aisle to the unconscious driver and grabbing the wheel Monday morning as other students yell: “Call 911!”

Wuitschick turned off the ignition and guided the bus safely onto the curb. Students started CPR on Callis until help arrived.

Paramedics who rushed to Surprise Lake Middle School in Milton, Wash., said he suffered a heart attack.

Short says the 12 students on the bus and other drivers were offered counseling today in light of the death.

If that were youngstown city schools the kids would have thrown the driver out of the bus and road all around youngstown selling drugs.
hats off to those kids that tried to save this man.
