GRAY, TN (WJHL) – Heads turned Thursday morning in Gray as a school bus sank into a body of water.
However, it wasn’t an accident, it was intentional, and could help area rescue personnel perfect their craft.
A crane lifted the old school bus, which had all mechanical parts removed, and lowered it into the Gray Quarry.
The owners of the quarry let SCUBA divers train and explore the 75-foot deep water, located just behind Exit 13 of Interstate 26, and say the bus will add a new dimension of excitement for recreational divers.
They also believe it could help save lives in the future.
