Recently a school bus caught fire in Sharjah
Last week saw a massive fire break out on a bus in Kalba, Sharjah. The driver and a 14-year-old pupil evacuated all the students from the vehicle and no casualties were reported.
The 14-year-old’s heroic act caught the attention of UAE’s Vice President and Prime Minister, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed. He made a visit to his school to meet the young hero.
With our hero Khalifa Al Kaabi, who saved his classmates when their bus caught fire and managed to get them all out minutes before it burst into flames. Khalifa is more than just a boy. He’s a man who loves to offer a helping hand like his president Khalifa Bin Zayed. pic.twitter.com/gqdNAvVlNX
