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.
