ROSSFORD, Ohio¬†–¬†A training exercise this past Wednesday morning left students literally hanging on to the edge of their seats.
In the scenario: A school bus is en route to an event when suddenly it‚Äôs hijacked! A camera inside the bus captured the whole thing while an audience of school teachers, administrators and transportation directors watched it all unfold on a live feed.
The hijacker even tied some of the students up and told them to keep their heads down. The bus eventually ended up at Owens Center for Emergency Preparedness. That‚Äôs where first responders and SWAT teams were ready to move in.
‚ÄúEvery driver, administrator will take something away from this saying that this could actually happen on my bus. That‚Äôs what our focus was. This could happen on any bus‚ÄĚ says Jeff Culler, Rossford Schools Transportation Director
Organizers say planning for the drill began in May.
