WATCH: Teachers jump into action to stop out-of-control school bus
CHARLESTON, S.C. (CNN) – Some fast-acting teachers in South Carolina recently put the brakes on a very dangerous situation.
The Charleston County School District says it all started when a school bus went through a stop sign during a turn.
The momentum pushed the driver out of his 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.
The district is now saying the two teachers are heroes.
