Bus driver called a hero after helping this 2-year-old
A bus driver from Oregon, America has been called a hero, after picking up a barefoot toddler, who was wandering around by himself on the main road.
The security camera on board the bus caught the moment when the bus driver, Bill Clark decided to slam the breaks after spotting the toddler on the main road. He then retrieved the two-year-old boy, who was walking around in only a nappy and a t-shirt.
Bill called the Department of Human Services and afterwards, gave the boy a cup of hot chocolate and an oatmeal raisin cookie.
"When I said chocolate, he lit up and said, 'Chocolate!'"
The two-year-old boy, James was soon reunited with his father, after he was reported missing. The father works a night shift and had fallen asleep when the boy wandered away and James' mother had already left for work.
Despite his admirable actions, Bill has laughed at the idea that he’s a hero.
"It was just a corner of my eye thing. I just caught a glimpse of him, stopped the bus and got out to see if his parents were around ... They weren't. So, I picked him up and took him back to the garage."
