Two passengers who saved a runaway bus when its driver fainted have become local heroes - and been offered a special reward! VIDEO

Bus drivers are often scorned because of their driving habits, especially in South Africa, where bus crashes have become a recurring issue.

Given rising fuel costs, more people now rely on public transport. Which is why it's important to have bus drivers with good driving skills and a knowledge of what to do during and after an accident.


One such is Mao Zhihao of China. A CCTV camera on his bus caught his close shave with death when a falling lamp pole smashed through his windscreen. The video shows how the pole actually hits Mao, although his  reflexes helped avoid too much damage.

He's been hailed as a hero for stopping the  bus and help passengers to alight.

Watch the video here!
