Video caputures near death experience for bus driver
(CNN) — A bus driver in China is being called a hero and is lucky to be alive. The driver was behind the wheel of a bus carrying 26 passengers when a collapsed lamppost smashed through the windshield.
He was hit and his spleen ruptured, but he still managed to avoid another catastrophe by steering the bus to the side of the road and slowing it down.
The driver was taken to the hospital to get treated for the ruptured spleen but it could have been much worse.
