A Ballarat CDC bus driver, his passengers and a passer-by have all been honored by Ambulance Victoria in the Community Hero Awards

Bus Driver Steve Bathurst went to the aid of a jogger, who was clinically dead and had been lying on the ground for at least 6 minutes.

Mr Bathurst, who was driving in Soverign Hill, said because it was so dark he thought Mr Bathurst was a backpack lying on the ground, but as he got closer he realised it was a person.

The group of people started performing CPR, saving the man, who has now made a full recovery and is back out jogging.
