It was a nightmare come true for 30 passengers on a bus in East China recently. The driver of the vehicle suddenly slumped over, leaving the bus to careen, uncontrolled, over to the verge of the highway.
Security footage from the bus shows Li Ming, the driver, suffering a stroke and falling unconscious after driving for 17 hours without rest from Pingyang, Zhejiang Province. Luckily, a few of the passengers noticed the situation and quickly stepped in to heroically steer the bus away from danger.
Xie Shangpan, a 45-year-old businessman onboard sprung into action and was one of those who prevented what could have been a deadly situation. He had been taking a nap, but after feeling the bus sway and hit a roadside barrier, he knew something was wrong.
He managed to reach the driver’s seat and take control of the bus. He then was able to pull it over to the side of the road and come to a complete stop without further incident.
No passengers were injured. However, CPR was performed at the scene with the driver, who was immediately rushed to the hospital.
With the help of several other passengers, the driver was taken off the bus and emergency services were called. A few people attempted to resuscitate the driver and he was able to regain consciousness at the scene.
