On Monday morning in the UK, children were traveling on a motor coach to school when it began to smoke. One of the alert children became concerned and said something to the bus driver.
The driver decided to pull over to check it out, and had all the children get off the bus. Moments later, it burst into flames, the Mirror UK reported.
The quick thinking student likely saved the lives of several classmates. Take a look at the damage from the fire:

The bus can be seen charred almost entirely. If any children had been on that bus when the flames erupted, it’s unlikely they would’ve been able to survive the intense heat.
After the fire, students were transferred to another bus and taken back to the school. A harrowing ordeal for anyone to go through, let alone young children.
There were 60 children on the bus. All are accounted for. Kudos to the heads up little lad!
