The kids are fine, and Timko is recovering in the hospital from some bumps and bruises.
The 11-year-veteran crossing guard doesn't remember much about his heroic action.
"All I remember was there was some kids, it was raining real hard and it was flooded, and they couldn't cross the street. The light was changing, and all I remember was running out to stop the traffic," Timko said.
Today was supposed to be the day Timko retired from being a crossing guard, and now he says he's going out with a bang.
