(Newser) – A 12-year-old Indiana boy who survived a bus stop crash that killed three young siblings has met the medics who saved his life, per the AP. Maverik Lowe's mother wrote on Facebook that her son on Saturday met with a nurse and a paramedic who treated him during a helicopter flight from the crash scene to a hospital. Jocelynne Lowe posted photos of the meeting outside a helicopter and also shared the images with WRTV. She wrote that she'd waited three months to meet the two people "I owe everything to."

A woman driving a pickup truck struck and critically injured Maverik as he and three other children crossed a highway to board a school bus on Oct. 30 near Rochester. Six-year-old twin brothers Xzavier and Mason Ingle and their 9-year-old sister, Alivia Stahl, were killed. Maverik's family has a fund-raising page. (The driver says she saw the flashing lights but didn't realize she was approaching a school bus in the dark.)
