Samuel Agunbiade was honored for saving the lives of all 30 kids on his bus. He has been a school bus driver for over 21 years, so being honoured for doing something brave was a surprise to him.
“They’re calling me a hero. I said hero? I just did what I was supposed to do you guys are mine I’m supposed to take care of you,” said Agunbiade.
He said he saw smoke coming out of the tailpipe in the bus, packed the bus immediately and rushed all the kids to a safe place so that they won’t be hurt.
