School Bus Hijacking…Say What?

A school bus hijacking drill took place in Rossford, OH as reported by ABC12 in Flint MI.

A training exercise this Rossford, Wednesday morning left students literally hanging on to the edge of their seats.

In the scenario: A school bus is en route to an event when suddenly it’s hijacked! A camera inside the bus captured the whole thing while an audience of school teachers, administrators and transportation directors watched it all unfold on a live feed.

The hijacker even tied some of the students up and told them to keep their heads down. The bus eventually ended up at Owens Center for Emergency Preparedness.That’s where first responders and SWAT teams were ready to move in.

“Every driver, administrator will take something away from this saying that this could actually happen on my bus. That’s what our focus was. This could happen on any bus”, says Jeff Culler, Rossford Schools Transportation Director

Could we at least let the bus driver know what’s going on? What would happen if the driver had a heart attack?
