article imageVideo: Fainting driver stops bus, saves passengers in China

Changsha - A quick-thinking bus driver managed to stop and park her vehicle before fainting, to save her passengers, in Changsha, the capital of China's Hunan Province.
Reportedly suffering from hyperventilation syndrome, the driver, Sheng Li, was feeling intense pain.
The CCTV cameras on the bus caught the action on Thursday as, around 10 meters away from a bus stop, Sheng manages to stop the bus, pull the hand brake, and open the door for the 40 passengers on the bus, before collapsing on to the steering wheel.
Passengers can be seen pinching Sheng's acupuncture points, and then calling an ambulance once they realized that she had fainted.
Sheng Li is apparently in a stable condition but is still weak. When congratulated on her actions on the bus, she said that they were what she ought to do as a bus driver.
