Poland bus passengers prevent crash after driver faints

A Polish bus company has praised the actions of two female passengers riding on a bus near the town of Kiezmark, west of Gdansk, for stepping in when the driver passed out.

A spokesperson for bus company PKS Gdansk said the women probably saved the lives of the 20 people on board.

No one was injured in the incident, which was captured on CCTV cameras on the vehicle, although the bus driver was taken to hospital for tests.

Tom Santorelli reports.
