Lindora Richardson was driving students home from school, when she could smell something burning. She pulled over then smoke started coming out of the dashboard.  Lindora, didn’t take any chances and got the children, aged five to ten, out through the back of the bus and down the street. Moments later, the bus was completely engulfed in flames.

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ spokeswoman said,

We are very proud of her and for her following proper procedures. It could have taken a very different turn had she not done her job correctly.”

The bus driver will be honored by the Charlotte Fire Department this week. As for Richardson, her hero turn was just a matter of instinct. “I do have two kids, and I do love children, (and) I love my job,” she explained.
