Samuel Agunbiade, a US-based bus driver has been honoured by the board of Spring Branch Independent School District, Houston for keeping 30 kids of the school safe from a fire outbreak which occured last Friday.
On hearing a loud pop and seeing smoke coming from the bus’s tailpipe, Agunbiade who has been a bus driver for 21 years, swiftly pulled off and was filmed getting the students off the bus unharmed. The vehicle caught fire and exploded minutes later.
“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.”. He said.
