Lindora Richardson says she was just doing her job. Richardson is a public school bus driver in Charlotte, North Carolina, who noticed smoke coming from the dash of her bus. What she did next may have saved the six students who were on her bus.

CNN  reports Richardson was driving the children ages five-to-ten-years-old home from school Wednesday afternoon when she smelled something burning. After stopping the bus to investigate, she calmly got the six children off the bus and down the street before it went up in flames. Listen to her story.
