Towards the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War, Peter Parker is on a school bus, presumably going to school [or on a field trip]. When Peter notices The Maw's ship in the distance, he immediately asks the kid in front of him to make a distraction. The kid pauses for a split second, then gets up and yells, "we're all gonna die!", and runs towards the back of the bus.

Did he know that Peter Parker is Spider-Man?

Other than the comedy aspect of it, I find it odd that the kid didn't ask Peter why he needed to create a distraction, but, more importantly, it's curious that the kid chose "we're all going to die!" as a distraction instead of something else.

IMO, the kid reacted as if he actually thought they were going to die, specifically because Spider-Man was asking him to create the distraction. But, AFAIK, Peter Parker has kept his Spider-Man identity a secret.

So, was this kid really just causing a distraction, or, did he really think they were all going to die (or were in serious danger)?

  • It looked like he saw Ebony Maw's ship from the bus, so "we're all going to die" is both a convenient distraction and a legitimate fear – LogicianWithAHat May 3 '18 at 15:08

That kid is Ned ( Peter's best friend) and he does know his secret identity, he discovered it in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Here is a clip of that scene:
