The school bus landed in a diner

Dramatic footage has been released showing the INSIDE of a school bus as a tornado picks it up and throws it into a building.

The bus driver decided to turn around and head back to school for shelter when she spotted the twister.

Thankfully they reached safety just in time - minutes before the tornado came and tossed it into the air, smashing it into the front of a diner.

The powerful tornado wiped out the small town of Henryville in the US state of Indiana in March.
