Charleston County school bus heroes story getting international attention

The Post and Courier's story about two teachers who saved a school bus from crashing after the driver lost control has gone international.

The New York Daily News wrote a summary of the story Friday, relying on quotes and the video from The Post and Courier.

The London Daily Mail also wrote its version of the article Friday, also with attribution to The Post and Courier.

The two Pinckney School Elementary School teachers were hailed as heroes after the driver lost control of the bus, with 26 children aboard and their chaperones on board. He fell out of his seat onto the floor and the two teachers jumped in to regain control.

Readers also reported seeing the story on several national television network news shows.

Several sources said CNN has been promoting the story for a Monday segment, possibly for 10 a.m. CNN didn't immediately respond to a request for more information.
