What an awesome lady.
It’s hard to imagine a more troubling scene: a yellow school bus engulfed in flames.
That’s what residents of 51st Street in College Park, Maryland, saw Monday afternoon.
But all 20 students of Glenarden Woods Elementary School in Prince George’s County made it off the bus safely thanks to the driver. Reneita Smith jumped into action when she saw flames.
“I opened my door, took off my seat belt, and I got my babies off that bus,” she said.
“I have people calling me a hero, and I say that I’m just a mom,” she said.
