A Florida school bus driver gets all students off smoking bus before it bursts into flames and explodes.
A Florida school bus driver was able to empty his crowded bus just before it burst into flames and exploded, witnesses said.
Grateful parents said the driver stopped the vehicle full of schoolchildren after occupants smelled smoke.
Doug Alexander said the driver told him the smell was coming from the air conditioner.
"All of a sudden, ka-boom, the was one explosion and then a few minutes later, another explosion," he said.
Orlando-area sheriff's deputies said the driver experienced mechanical problems not far from the first stop on his middle school out.
After he herded everyone out, another bus was sent to get the kids home.
Dad Sean Rogers went to pick up his 14-year-old daughter at the explosion site and said he'd like to tell the driver, "thank you very much for saving all those children's lives."
