Darnell Barton has become an American hero overnight.
While driving his bus on the usual route, he noticed a woman hanging off the guardrail of a bridge over a Buffalo highway.
“It didn’t seem real because of what was going on around… Traffic was going as normal, pedestrians going by as normal.”
Barton can be seen in this bus camera video, published online by the Associated Press, pulling over and asking the woman if she was OK. He then calmly walked off the bus, put his arm around her, and pulled her to safety.
“I was meant to be there for her at that moment. And I was.”
