Bus Driver Heroics Saves Man's Life

A BUS driver has been congratulated for heroically pulling a man from underneath a bus and saving his life.

Stephen Barry was travelling on the number 29 Stagecoach bus last month when driver Philip Day stopped near Cundy Cross at about 5.50pm.

The man - believed to be in his 20s - fell between the curb and the bus and Philip pulled him from under the stationary vehicle and helped him to his feet.

Stephen said: "He deserves a badge as big as a dustbin lid. If he hadn't have seen him he would've been dead."

General public will still have had a go at driver for being late, its disgusting how these drivers are tret given the responsibility they have to deal with on a day to day basis, give em all a medal they do a fantastic job.

We don't need a medal just a bit of respect

People don't treat pilots that way, and a traffic collision is more likely to happen - I too think drivers deserve a little respect as concentration levels must be high!! Plus, I'm sure there's a lot more happens behind the scenes than people tend to realise??

At last someone are praising bus drivers, about time - thankyou. They have a very hard job and don't know how they concentrate and cope the way they are treat and abused by some of the general public, its like a mad house on buses and some people are so rude or know the concept of manners and in talking about adults not children. Well done bus drivers, keep up the good work
