MILTON, Wash. (AP) -- Police are praising Milton middle school students who safely stopped a school bus Monday morning after the driver was stricken, apparently with a heart attack.

The bus was on its way to Surprise Lake Middle School when the driver slumped over and passed out.

As the bus lurched toward the curb, two students went to the driver's seat and stopped the bus. One took the keys out of the ignition and others called 911.

KIRO-TV reports (http://is.gd/Zu6kgd) students gave the driver CPR until he was taken to a hospital.
