    On October 8th 1974,he was returning from Tsakhkadzor(a mountain resort town in Armenia) when he and 30 passengers on a bus got stuck on a 45 degree incline.The bus driver went out to check and see what`s wrong with the engine,when suddenly bus started moving backwards to the edge of the canyon.He broke the window that separated drivers cabine from the rest of the bus(Soviet buses had that) and steered the bus into the mountain(it was the only way of stoping it) thus saving 30 lives.When asked "How did you manage to pull it of?" he said "I was the closest"…Humble guy

    A true selfless hero to humanity. We could use a couple million more like Shavarsh. I'd like to meet this guy and thank him for maintaining my faith in mankind.
