ATLANTA (AP) - Four students from the Georgia Academy for the Blind in Macon are back home in metro Atlanta after hitching a ride with the Georgia National Guard.

Georgia National Guard Capt. Jonathan Sellars and Russell Bergman with the Governor’s Office said Wednesday that they spent about six hours the night before driving down from the Clay National Guard Center in Marietta to the school in Macon to pick up the children and bring them home before the storm worsened. The children ranged in age from 11 to 18 years old.

Sellars says the children’s parents, who were unable to make the drive, greeted him and Bergman with handshakes and hugs. Sellars says he was grateful they were able to make it back safely to metro Atlanta before weather conditions worsened overnight.
