LAKE ELMO, Minn. (AP) -- A 12-year-old Minnesota girl knew what to do when a bus driver blacked out last week.
Rana Kraftson of Bayport ran to the front of the bus, pulled the bus driver's foot off the accelerator and pressed her hands on the brake pedal. She then got on the driver's CB radio and called for help.
Rana says that's "what any reasonable human would have done."
The seventh-grader attends Oak-Land Junior High in Lake Elmo. She and eight other Nordic ski team members were on their way to practice when the bus driver lost consciousness.
Rana tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/XGyjbq ) everyone thought she was joking when she ran to the front of the bus.
The Washington County sheriff's office plans to nominate Rana for a lifesaving award.
