Guelph safety patroller's quick thinking earns him provincial safety award
When Derek Winget noticed a junior kindergarten student was still on a school bus as it pulled away from École élémentaire publique L'Odyssée in Guelph, he took quick action.
The safety patroller first tried to flag down the bus driver, but when that didn't work, he ran to tell a teacher, then went to the school's office to tell the secretary, who then called the school bus driver.
His quick thinking earned him the CAA School Safety Patroller of the Year award.
Listen to Derek describe that day and whether his older brother - who inspired him to become a safety patroller - is proud of him.
