(( The school bus was on its way to Blue Lakes Elementary in South Dade County when police say the man forced his way on.
On board were 11 special-needs children, an adult aide and the bus driver.
The man claimed to have a bomb.
He led police on a 15-mile, low speed chase into Miami Beach.
Along the way, police were able to convince the hijacker to stop the bus and let some of the children out, until only five remained on board.
Finally, the hijacker forced the driver to go to Joe's Stone Crab, a popular Miami Beach restaurant where he had been fired the night before.
All the while, school bus driver Alicia Chapman remained calm.
OCTAVIO VISIEDO/DADE CO. SCHOOLS SUPERINTENDENT: SHE NEVER PANICKED, SHE'S A HERO.
As the hijacker approached the door of the bus, police shot him and dragged him to the street.
It turned out there was no bomb.
Paramedics worked on the man, but he was dead.
More police rushed in and pulled the children off the bus.
They were scared, but otherwise ok.
As frantic parents rushed to the school for word on their kids, the children were miles away, eating french fries and ice cream at Joe's Restaurant.
THEY FELT BETTER AFTER ICE CREAM
As for the hijacker, his former co-workers at Joe's said he was having personal problems that may have included trouble with the IRS.
No one will ever know for sure what drove him to this.
One thing is certain the families of 11 boys and girls feel blessed that things didn't turn out worse.))
