Bus driver hit by fallen lamppost, steers bus to safety

CHINA (KYTX/CNN) - A bus driver in China is being called a hero after a pole crashes through a bus.

We warn you -- the video you are about to see may be difficult for some of you to watch.

Surveillance video shows the driver behind the wheel of a bus carrying 26 passengers. A collapsed lamppost smashed through the windshield. He was hit and his spleen ruptured, but he still managed to avoid another catastrophe by steering the bus to the side of the road and slowing it down.

The driver was taken to the hospital to get treated for the ruptured spleen.
