Bus driver rescues baby girl seen wandering alone barefoot on street

"And when I saw him, I pulled over my bus and immediately picked up him", said Ivic.

A Wisconsin bus driver is being hailed as a hero after she didn't hesitate to stop and run to the rescue of a barefoot baby walking alone on a freeway overpass.

"Irena Ivic did a lot more than her job, she did the right thing". Abele called her actions "humanity at its best". "I don't take that kind of compassion for granted", said County Executive Abele.

She runs across the street and picks up the crying boy, who was making his way around a corner, bringing him on board her bus.

The Milwaukee County Transit System says the girl was less than a year old and wearing only a diaper and a onesie when bus driver Irena Ivic spotted him on December 22. The child was cold to the touch after spending time outside in the freezing temperatures.

Originally from Serbia, Ivic has lived in Milwaukee for over a decade and been an employee of MCTS for the past five.

Firefighters, police officers and transit security officers arrived on the scene a short time later and took the child, who was unfortunately unharmed, so they could find her family. Authorities eventually reunited the boy with his father. Police said the boy's mother left him outside, according to MCTS.

Ivic said she was grateful she could keep the boy safe, MCTS said in a video about the incident.

It was the ninth lost or missing child found by MCTS drivers in recent years, officials said.
