A school bus driver in Racine, Wisconsin has a special message for one of her students after he jumped into action and saved her life. 

Driver Da’quisha Adams had just picked up 9-year-old Jayden Harameo and his sisters in her school bus when she suffered the attack.

The fourth grader knew something was wrong when Adams started coughing and pulled over the bus. The driver was experiencing an asthma attack. 

Without hesitation, the Harameo jumped into action. Thanks to his help, paramedics found their way to the bus on Pritchard Drive. 

"Jayden, he…he saved my life, and I just want to thank him," Adams said.

Jayden’s brave act is right on par with this year’s school theme: life together. Senior Pastor Steven Jennings could not be more proud to hear it is making an impact. 

For now, Jayden is content doing what kids do, playing football and having fun. He says he hopes to one day become an NFL player or a police officer.

One thing he may never forget: the day he saved a life.
