A community in Michigan is heaping praise on to a seventh-grader who regained control of a school bus whose driver lost consciousness and was on the verge of crashing, according to officials.
Dillon Reeves was on a bus taking him as well as other students home from a day of classes at Carter middle school in Warren, just north of Detroit, when the driver began to feel dizzy and passed out, said a statement from the local education system’s superintendent.
Reeves went to the front of the bus after he noticed the driver had fallen, stepped on the brakes and steered away from traffic on the road to bring the vehicle to a stop, according to video obtained by CBS News.
After Reeves told his schoolmates to call for help, emergency responders – along with the principal of Carter – arrived. None of the children onboard were hurt. Reeves had also prevented the bus from striking at least one car and a house that were in its path, said a Facebook post from local city council member Jonathan Lafferty, which identified the quickly acting boy.
First responders treated the driver for an unspecified medical emergency while the students were loaded on to a different bus and brought safely home.
“The city of Warren is very proud of our [seventh] grade hero,” Lafferty’s post said. “This young man jumped into action … avoiding what could have been a tragic accident.”

A hero like not many, people older than him would have not done better.

On a regular weekday afternoon, a school bus carrying nearly 50 students from Warren’s local middle school careened off the road and directly towards a busy intersection. Inside the bus, chaos ensued as students panicked and tried to escape through the windows. That’s when 13-year-old Dillon Reeves stepped up and took charge.

You can recognize a leader from ability to “take” the charge when adversities arise before his eyes.


With wisdom beyond his years and bravery in his heart, Dillon quickly assessed the situation and instructed his fellow students to sit down and brace themselves. Through sheer force of will and determination, Dillon managed to take control of the bus and steer it away from danger, dodging other vehicles on the way.

You can recognize a leader by the way they “dominate” their sphere of influence as living space.

Dillon’s heroic actions have earned him widespread admiration and recognition in the local community, and beyond. Indeed, his bravery and selflessness have drawn comparisons to the young Spartan warriors of ancient Greece, who were schooled in the art of war and taught to endure hardships and adversity from a young age.
Like the young Spartans, Dillon has demonstrated courage and resilience in the face of danger, and his actions have shown that true heroism knows no age or background.

From this ordeal, Dillon has learned valuable lessons about bravery, leadership, and the importance of standing up in the face of adversity.

In a world that values strength and courage, Dillon Reeves has proven himself to be a young Spartan warrior for our times – a true hero in every sense of the word.
