The bus was traveling shortly before 7 a.m. when it became trapped. A caller to 911 said water had seeped into the vehicle and had risen to the third step, WDAF reported. The water rising above the bus steps caused the vehicle to stall out, KMBC reported.
Police and firefighters responded and were able to evacuate the students and driver through the back door of the bus. No one was injured, the television station reported, although the occupants got wet while walking to dry ground, WDAF reported.
More than 3 inches of rain fell in Kansas City on Monday morning, KMBC reported.
