|The bus security camera caught Pedar|
Dragin as he got on the bus to become
the millionth person to do so.
Dragin shrugged his shoulders and told Channel 1 News, "Sometimes you're in the right place at the right time. As for the poor lady that missed it by one, if she hadn't crowed ahead of me she would have been the winner."
Metro Bus Lines knew the milestone would be reached this week, just not when or where. Dragin will be awarded a special plack and free bus rides until his next birthday, which unfortunately for Dragin is tomorrow. To compensate, he plans to ride the bus non stop until his special status ends at midnight tomorrow.
