5th grader hailed a hero

I don’t know how many adults would do this, let alone a fifth grader . . .

A school bus carrying 27 elementary students crashed in Tampa, Florida on Thursday after the brakes went out.

It hit a signpost, clipped a tree, flipped on its SIDE, and ended up half-submerged in a POND. But luckily, 10-year-old Nicholas Sierra was one of the kids on board.

After the bus hit the water, Nicholas went into hero mode. First he saw a kindergartner who was underwater . . . grabbed her by the arm . . . and carried her out of the bus.

Then once she was safe, he went back IN, and saved two MORE kindergarteners who were trapped inside.

Police say the bus driver also made sure all the kids were safe before he left the bus. And in the end, no one was seriously hurt.
