Exercise Scenario

Early in the afternoon on a breezy September day eighth grade students are returning from their first field trip of the school year. The school bus they are riding on is traveling through one of the more densely populated sections of the city as it makes its way back to school.

Meanwhile a delivery truck is traveling down the same street in the opposite direction.

Suddenly the truck driver grasps his chest in pain and slumps over the steering wheel. Within moments the truck collides with the school bus.
