Four special-needs students and two adults were rescued from a bus caught in floodwaters caused by a severe storm in Texas. Meanwhile, three students and two adults were rescued from another flooded bus in the area, and no injuries were reported.
Police say that when a 15-year-old passenger failed to follow the bus driver’s instructions, the driver pulled him out of his seat and struck him. Other students captured the incident in cell phone videos.
Emma McGowan, a bus driver at Schaumburg (Ill.) Township Elementary District 54, won two gold and three silver medals at the World Masters Track and Field Championships in Lyon, France, over the summer.
