A Bus Driver in Miami Has Helped Save Lives Three Times While On the Job

Saving another person’s life is a pretty special thing. It’s even more special when you’re able to save a life not once, not twice, but three times. In fact, a person who saves three lives is pretty indisputably a hero.

Laronda Marshall is a Miami-Dade County transit driver who has helped save three lives in the past eight years.

Most recently, one of her passengers slumped over in his seat. Another passenger alerted Marshall to the issue, and she pulled over. She called headquarters for help, but she didn’t wait for anyone else to arrive before she sprang into action.

Marshall laid the sick passenger on the floor of the bus, with the help of some other passengers.

She then began administering CPR and she didn’t stop until the police and paramedics arrived. The man lived, but he might not have had Marshall not been there to be a hero. “The paramedics told me … he would have passed away by the end of the line,” Marshall told The Star.

Marshall is used to being heroic while driving her bus.

In November 2017, she saw a pedestrian lying in the middle of the road after being hit by a car. She pulled over, parked the bus to shield the man, and stayed to comfort him until more help arrived.

Later in 2017, she spotted another person in the middle of the road. This time, it was a little girl who was lost. Marshall pulled over and guided the girl onto her bus to keep her safe.

“I have a love for people, and my instinct is to jump in and help,” Marshall said.

Marshall is being praised for her good work. “This just exemplifies what we hope we have in every employee, someone who just cares about what they’re doing and cares about the people they’re serving,” Alice Bravo, director of the Miami-Dade Department of Transportation and Public Works told 7News Miami.

It’s a good thing the people of Miami have a hero like Marshall on the roads. Who knows who she’ll save next.
