Hero Alert: 20-year Old Grabs A Bus and Saves Lives

Click here for the full story from the Houston Chronicle.

Short version is 20 year-old Jabbar Gibson was trapped in New Orleans with a bunch of other people. He grabbed a school bus, loaded it up with about 50 passengers and headed to Houston's Astrodome where he had heard hurricane survivors were being welcomed. The group picked up people they saw on their way out, pooled their money for gas, and finally made their way to the Astrodome.

Sadly, when the group arrived they were denied entry (no lie) because the Astrodome was "reserved for the 23,000 people being evacuated from the Louisana Superdome." Gibson stood his ground and eventually the group was allowed into the Astrodome. Brave boy.
