A Buffalo bus driver is being called a hero after stopping his bus to save a suicidal woman on a bridge overpass.

He had just picked up about two dozen high school kids when he spotted a woman on the wrong side of the ledge.

He stopped the bus, asked her if she needed help, and slowly walked towards her.  She was distraught, disconnected, and distant when he got to her and he grabbed her arm and put his arm around her.

He asked her if she wanted to come to the other side of the guardrail and she did… he stayed with her until authorities showed up.

When he got back on the bus the students gave him a big round of applause.
