26 Children Buried Alive

In the summer of 1976, bus driver Ed noticed a vehicle stopped in the road in front of him blocking his usual route. As Ed slowed to survey the vehicle, three gunmen ambushed the bus, taking Ed and the 26 children aboard the bus as hostages. They were transported a grueling 11 hours in thick summer heat to a buried moving van, where they were held for hours with makeshift toilets, mattresses, and little food or water. Ed and the students were able to remain calm and hatched a plan to escape their fate.
