Maryland man saves child pinned by bus
PARKVILLE, Md. (WBFF) -- A Parkville man is being labeled a hero after he rescued a child who was pinned underneath a school bus after it veered off the street.
Police say the driver, Arturo Roberto Harris, 61, left four students unattended on the bus in front of High Point High School on Monday morning. The bus then drifted across Powder Mill Road and hit 7-year-old Ivas who was waiting at a bus stop.
Knight says he saw the bus hit Ivas and ran over to try and help him. "He was yelling and screaming, 'please get me out, please get me out.'"
Knight says his training as a Baltimore County auxiliary officer helped him safely pull the boy from under the bus. He stayed with the boy until paramedics arrived, and made sure Harris stayed at the scene.
Harris faces charges of reckless endangerment, leaving a child unattended, and several traffic charges related to the accident.
The four students on the bus at the time of the accident also went to the hospital, with minor injuries.
Knight says he would like to pursue being a full-time police officer.
