One parent says her daughter called to tell her that the school bus she was on had flooded.
“The words out of her mouth were, ‘Hi mom, the bus tipped over can you bring me some shoes?'” Allie Gershcke said.
It happened Monday morning outside Pilgrim Park Middle School.
Police said, due to the rain, the driver could not see the edge of the roadway.
“It tends to flood over there, but still, the last thing that I would ever be getting a phone call about to start the week,” Gershcke said.
Officers and school staff helped rescue students from the back door emergency exit of the bus. Fortunately, no one was hurt.
