He saved everyone on the bus!

sia_pod_0108_200x148.jpgAs John Crandall, 13, and other students were riding the bus home from school, a large tree fell off the back of a truck ahead of them. The bus swerved and rolled over.

Many of the students were panicking and confused.

Listen as John describes what he did to get everyone off the bus in a true story of Scouts in Action.
