Newly released video shows a school bus getting swept away by floodwaters in Texas last week.
You see the driver trying to get through a flooded crossing after driving past a barricade. A 12-year old student passenger was with the driver.
The bus floats down the creek, tipping side to side. Eventually the driver completely loses control. The student’s mother said her son called her in hysterics, afraid he was going to die.
Some trees finally stopped the bus. Emergency responders were able to rescue the driver and the boy. Police arrest the driver who is now charged with endangering a child and not obeying warning signs.
The school district says the driver has been fired.
