Students and Driver Rescued From Bus Trapped in Floodwaters in Pennsylvania

Forty students and the driver were rescued from a school bus that became trapped in rising floodwaters in Shaler Township, Pennsylvania, on September 1, as the remnants of Hurricane Ida triggered severe flooding in the northeast US.

At least 16 people died due to flooding in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, according to WTXF.

Footage released by the Cherry City Volunteer Fire Company shows Shaler Township students being moved from the school bus onto a rubber dinghy.

The fire company said it was called to the incident shortly before 7 am, and all 41 people on board were rescued with no injuries.
