Bus driver revives McKinney student with CPR
from: Star Local News
School bus drivers aren't required to know CPR. Fortunately for 14-year-old Dakota, a special-needs student, her bus driver does.
Driver Linda Wilson likely saved the Evans Middle School student's life last month. She performed CPR to revive an unresponsive Dakota before paramedics came and handled the rest.
Dakota, who cannot talk and is wheelchair-bound, has been one of Wilson's frequent passengers for three years. On this day, she was on Wilson's and assistant Guadalupe Solis's first route.
They picked her up shortly before 8 a.m. and were in Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney near their second pickup when the seizure happened. Solis had never been around one, Wilson said, and quickly alarmed her driver.
