13-year-old Michigan schoolboy steers school bus to safety after driver passes out

A 13-year-old boy in the United States has been hailed as a hero for springing into action and taking control of his packed school bus when the driver passed out.

The incident occurred on Wednesday afternoon, when Dillon Reeves was on his way home from school in Warren, Michigan, US media reported.

There were 66 other students in the bus.

At some point during the journey, the bus driver started feeling dizzy.

Surveillance footage shows her speaking into the radio, saying she was going to pull over. But before she can do so, she starts shaking and loses consciousness.

Realising what was happening, Dillon rushes to the front to assume control of the moving bus.

Students can be heard screaming as he slams on the brakes, quickly bringing the bus to a halt.

He then calls out to others on the bus to call 911.
