Driver Loses Control of Bus Full of Kids

Two teachers from South Carolina are being hailed as heroes for what they did to save a bus full of children.

Fourth-grade teacher Amy Ryan and sign language interpreter Lee Morris sprung into action after the driver of their school bus became disoriented.

They took the wheel and stopped the bus from rolling over.

Both spoke on "New Day" Monday and Ryan, who jumped over the driver's seat to hit the break, said, "I remember thinking.. I can not believe this situation is happening to me. At that moment, I don't think I was fearful. I was very scared when we went through the stop sign, I was very scared when it felt like we were going to tip, at that moment, when I actually went over the bus driver to get to the breaks, I don't think I was scared at that moment. I just knew the bus had to stop."
