A second year female high school student is being hailed as a hero after calling the emergency 119 service to help a brave bus driver who was run over by a car after trying to stop a drunk driver in Dongnae-gu last Tuesday evening around 10:40 p.m.
The shocking video of the incident made headlines this week after a bus driver tried to prevent a drunk driver’s car from moving by leaning on the car’s hood while trying to call the police. The 39-year-old Mr. “B” hit the bus driver to move him, got out and started an altercation with the 60-year-old. After the car owner got back in his car, the bus driver tried to prevent the car from moving again but the car sped away, running him over.
The quick-minded student Kim called 119 and reported the injuries, as well as the license plate number of the car, while staying to assist the injured bus driver.
The driver was arrested about 600 meters from the scene with a blood alcohol level of 0.104%. The legal limit in the Republic of Korea is 0.05%.
