MILTON, Wa. -- Two seventh grade boys are heroes after stopping their school bus when the driver suffered a medical emergency.

The bus was on its way to a middle school in Milton, Washington Monday morning when the driver's head fell back.

Jeremy Wuitschick, 13, immediately jumped up and grabbed the wheel.

He said he steered the bus toward the side of the road, took the keys out of the ignition and tried doing chest compressions on the driver.

Then, Johnny Wood helped stop the bus while others called 911.

No students were hurt.

The driver was hospitalized and it's not clear what he was suffering from or what his condition is now.
