HERNANDO, Miss. (AP) – A DeSoto County school bus driver is being credited with saving a man's life.

The man's breathing returned to normal.

DeSoto County schools Transportation Director Levi Williams says Parks was in the right place at the right time.

The bus driver will be recognized by the DeSoto County School Board for her action.
