Hero Bus Driver Saves Student

School bus driver Laura Zborowski died Tuesday while saving a young passenger's life. Zborowski, 51, was conducting a routine evacuation drill with her students when the school bus began to roll backward, directly toward a 10-year-old girl. According to The Associated Press, Zborowski was able to push the young student out of the way, but was then struck by the bus and died of her injuries. Zborowski's act was no surprise to people who knew her, as longtime neighbor Steven Mikel told, "Your character comes through when the chips are down. You react."

Zborowski is survived by a son, Tyrese, 12. Visit her online Guest Book to leave your condolences and see how she is being remembered by those who knew her.
