Times of Israel – An Israeli became the hero of the day in New York City after taking over the wheel of a bus when the driver suddenly lost consciousness, managing to bring the runaway vehicle to a halt without serious injuries to any passengers or passersby.

“A few minutes into the trip, I heard a loud cough in the front. Someone yelled, and then we hit a car,” said Guy Preissler, a high-tech entrepreneur living in New York, recounting his Monday heroics to Channel 2 News on Thursday. “I gathered that something happened to the driver. I jumped up from my seat and saw he was unconscious, with his hands dangling by his sides and his head bent back. The bus kept colliding with cars parked sideways… I grabbed the steering wheel, spun it around and put the bus back on its course.”
