A heroic school bus driver saved the lives of many children on Monday after her bus caught fire, but she has brushed it off as just being part of the job.
Footage of the school bus on fire was recorded on dash-cam footage by volunteer chief of Branchville Volunteer Fire Company in College Park, MD.
The school bus driver, Reneita Smith, was able to safely get every student off the bus and away from harm.
“A big THANK YOU to our school bus driver Reneita Smith who just saved 20 elementary school kids from a bus fire that completely destroyed the bus,” Fazlul Kabir wrote on Facebook. “Reneita [not only] took each one of the 20 kids from the bus one by one, but also went into the empty bus again to check if everyone was out, while it was still burning.”
Kabir added, that Smith told him, “I am a mom of two kids. It’s my job to save them.”
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
