Russian Bus Driver Ignores Onboard Fire, Calmly Cruises Down The Road

In Mother Russia, flames don’t stop you from driving, even if they are inches away.

Take this bus driver, for example, who decided to continue cruising down the road, even if the flames were within arm’s reach.

The man must have probably quickly assessed the situation, deciding that despite the imminent danger of permanent mutilation and even death, it wasn’t quite the time to pull over and try to put out the fire, or even contact the emergency services.

Unfortunately, as the case goes with many of these strange videos, there’s absolutely no background info accompanying them. However, in this case, we do know that a fellow motorist shot it on a mobile phone last month, somewhere in Russia, but that’s where our knowledge on the incident ends.

Reading the comments won’t help shed any light on the case either, but they will probably put a smile on your face, if stereotypes don’t offend you.

Still, quite an educational film, isn’t it?

    he drove the bus to a quieter place where there are no people or cars. Then he himself extinguished the fire, before the arrival of firefighters.
    “In the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation in the Orel region told details of the minibus that caught fire on the way.

    The passenger bus started on the run in the center of Eagle, but the driver did not leave the cabin until the last, driving the flame-engulfed vehicle onto a secondary street.

    As the author of the video narrates, Denis Shelamov, the incident occurred on the morning of November 3 in the Vygonka district.

    Judging by the video, the fire occurred in the cab of minibus No. 7. The driver at this time opens and closes the door, but continues to move and stop to extinguish the flame, is not going to.

    As it became known, the actions of the driver found a simple explanation: he simply did everything possible so that the fire did not spread to other participants in the movement.

    It is noted that at the time when the flame appeared on the bus, there were no passengers on board. Removing from the busy roadway, the driver summoned the rescuers.”

      From percieve idiot to an actual hero. One more example of not making judgments until all the facts are known.

        And an example that you should actually spend three minutes on Google before you write an article.
