WOODBURY - A school bus driver has his job back after he was sacked for picking up three plain-clothes detectives while a teenage student was onboard.

George Daw says he picked up the Nassau County police detectives after they were stranded by flash flooding during last week's heavy storms.

The Educational Bus Transportation company said it let Daw go because they felt he put the student in danger.

The firing drew loud criticism from the public and the police.School bus driver: I was fired for helping police during storm
