Covington bus driver reunites with man whose life he saved

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) – A Covington bus driver has shared a tearful reunion with the man whose life he saved one February night.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports ( 75-year-old William Rothell regularly caught the bus after working at a restaurant. If he wasn’t at the stop when driver Mike McCord arrived, McCord would wait a minute or two because he knew Rothell would be there shortly.

But one night Rothell didn’t appear. McCord found him lying on the ground nearby and called 911.

Later, at the Hyde Park Health Center Rothell told staff he wished he could thank McCord. Staff eventually tracked down McCord and he visited last month.

McCord had searched for Rothell at local hospitals but could not locate him because he didn’t know his full name. He plans to continue visiting.
