Imagine you're 10 years old and your school bus collides head-on with an SUV. The bus is on fire. The SUV is demolished, its driver dead. Five of your classmates are injured.
What would you do? If you're anything like the fifth-grade version of Plog, you would, in a calm and orderly fashion, pee yourself, gather your baseball cards (yeah, Plog's old), trample everyone in sight and bail out the nearest window.
But Andy Schnurbusch? That kid's a bad-ass.
Schnurbusch was involved in yesterday's fiery crash in Eureka, Missouri,
where 20-year-old Kaela Archambaultan veered her SUV into the path of
an oncoming school bus. Archambaultan died at the scene.
the crash, Schnurbusch -- who, let's be honest, has probably gotten some
shit from classmates for his phonetically arduous surname -- went to
work, recalling the tips he'd learned in safety class. From KMOV:
Andy Schnurbusch: Grade school hero, future middle-school heartthrob. Here's the video from KMOV:
Fifth graders are told what to do if their school bus is ever involved in an accident, and Schnurbusch did not hesitate.
After the collission Schnurbusch got out of his seat and helped the
bus driver get off the bus. He believed she needed to be moved first,
because the engine compartment of the SUV had caught fire. Schnurbusch
then got the remaining 4 children off the bus. Those children were in
grades 1, 2 and 3.Schnurbusch may have suffered a broken nose, but he and the other children will be okay.
