Student who stopped bus faces discipline

UPI News Service, 03/14/2008 

A California high school student who saved a bus-load of elementary school pupils after the driver fell from her seat may be disciplined for being there.

Amanda Rouse, 15, had remained on the bus after it arrived at Marina High School because she wasn't feeling well. After driver Christine Gray picked up the younger children, she fell from her seat and Rouse yanked the emergency brake, the San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News reported.

"We hit a bump and everything was going fast," said Rouse. "She fell off the seat and down the stairs."

Rouse helped Gray to her feet and the driver called the garage.

Sally Corell, Rouse's grandmother, said she is proud of her.

"She is in trouble with school because she made the wrong decision," Correll told the Mercury News. "But I can't help but believe that she was where God wanted her to be."

Rouse must attend a session of Saturday school for staying on the bus instead of going in to school and telling a teacher or administrator she was sick.
